Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be assessed ahead of Arsenal’s Europa League last-16 second-leg home tie with Rennes on Thursday.

The midfielder took part in a warm-up with the rest of the Arsenal squad in training on Wednesday but has been struggling with a mild back strain.

He posted a photo on social media to show that he is now back in action on the training pitch at London Colney.

That will give Arsenal fans hope that he will be available for this evening’s Europa League last-16 second leg against Rennes, as the Gunners try to overturn a 3-1 deficit from the first leg.

Mkhitaryan only recently came back from a fractured metatarsal sustained in Arsenal’s Carabao Cup defeat against Tottenham last December.

He returned with two goals and three assists in February, seeing him named as Arsenal’s player of the month.

Unai Emery’s side need to overturn a 3-1 deficit against Rennes in order to reach the quarter-finals.
