Arsenal have been given a timely injury boost after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere were cleared to return to training, reports the Daily Mail.

All being well, the midfield trio are expected to be fit for the crunch tie against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday as Arsenal look to consolidate their position at the top of the Premier League.

Chamberlain and Arteta both picked up knocks after the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace in which the former scored both goals. However, the pair will resume normal first team training on Tuesday after being cleared by Arsenal physios.

Putting the icing on the cake, Wilshere is also expected to return having missed the game against Southampton and the Eagles with an ankle injury.

It's not all good news for Arsene Wenger, however, as it is believed captain Thomas Vermaelen suffered a setback while recovering from his latest injury.

Reports in Belgium has picked up a slight calf strain but it is not thought to be too serious.

Although Vermaelen is not currently a first choice for Wenger, his absence leaves the Arsenal boss with no recognised centre-backs if either Per Mertesacker of Laurent Koscielny get injured or suspended.
