Wheatley shared what he knows about the defender.

“We’re expecting him to be back by the end of the month in full training. It’s a really superb recovery for him after a horrible ACL injury against Nottingham Forest on the opening day of the season. Great news to see him back, I don’t think there’s pressure for him to start anytime soon, but they are happy to see him back in the squad,” Wheatley said.

This is fantastic news for Arsenal as we head into the business end of the season.

 

Let’s not forget, the Gunners’ title challenge last season was derailed due to a lack of defensive depth, and it sounds as though they may well have the exact opposite situation this time around.

 

Indeed, it looks as though the Gunners’ defensive depth will be bolstered rather than weakened towards the end of the season.

 

Timber’s return will give Arsenal much-needed cover in all of their defensive positions, and even if he’s not back to his best before the end of the campaign, at least he’s another option for if an injury or suspension crisis strikes.
