Headed into the closing frame of the 2015-2016 Premier League season, health is all important for a team to finish on a high note. Particularly, in Arsenal's case, when trying to secure a top four spot.

Which makes it good news that Santi Cazorla has succssfully trained for a full week and will be available for Saturday's match against Norwich. Fully recovered from a knee injury, with a side of Achilles tendon issues, Cazorla would be a surprise selection even to the bench after five months out but if Wenger has any thoughts of using him against Man City, some game time as a substitution would be in order. Either way, good to see him back and ready to go.

Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain is training as well, returning from his knee issues from the home loss to Barcelona back in February. Just a titch longer than that five weeks that was originally forcasted. Wenger has said due to his recent return to training, it is unlikely he'll be selected on a fitness basis. But maybe we see one more run out for The Ox on the final day.

As for the rest of the injury list, Arsenal still face... wait... that's can't be right. (shuffles papers) (opens more tabs) Huh... really? Wow.

Whole team's fit. I repeat, everyone is training. Yes, everyone. Even Wilshere and Rosicky. First time this season. Don't know about you, but I'm off to by a lottery ticket.
