Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has handed boss Unai Emery a boost ahead of the Gunners ' trip to Huddersfield Town on Saturday as the Armenian returned from injury this week.
The 30-year-old had been sidelined with a foot injury since mid-December but returned on Monday night to feature for Arsenal's Under 23s against West Ham United in the Premier League 2 clash.
After the match, he told the club's official website: "After a while, I came back. I started playing with the Under 23s and I'm very happy. I hope that I won't have any more injuries and I will keep playing."
He added: "I'm thankful to everyone who has been working with me. To the medical staff, to the fitness coach and everyone, even to my team-mates. They were supporting me every day.
"It's life, everything is happening and you can get injured or something like that. I hope that no one gets injured anymore and the team can be fully fit for the next games."
Mkhitaryan got 45 minutes under his belt at Boreham Wood earlier in the week but was left frustrated after the match was called off at the interval due to poor visibility as a result of fog.
At the time, Arsenal were 3 - 0 up thanks to goals from Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock and Konstantinos Mavropanos.
On the match being stopped at half time, he added: "Unfortunately, we didn't end up finishing the game. The game was called off but it was a great first half. I think we did very well.
"We could improve in some aspects but we scored three goals, were playing very good football and could've scored more."
