Tomas Rosicky made another step towards recovering from a long-term knee injury after playing 45 minutes for Arsenal Under-21’s on Friday.

The 35-year-old, who joined Arsenal in 2006, underwent knee surgery in August and returned to full training last week.

The Czech made 24 appearances in all competitions last season for the Gunners and is hoping he can play a part as Arsene Wenger’s side look to win their first title since 2004.

Rosicky won the title with both of his former clubs - Borussia Dortmund and Sparta Prague - so the midfielder could bring some much-needed title winning knowledge to the club.

The fans were understandably delight to see Rosicky back playing in Arsenal colours:

The Gunners have suffered a midfield injury crisis this campaign with Rosicky, Mikel Arteta, Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere and Francis Coquelin all ruled out for long periods this season.

However, Wenger bolstered his midfield options with the January signing of Mohamed Elneny from Basel for £5 million.

Rosicky had a steady half for the Under-21’s against Swansea City at their London Colney training base in Hertfordshire, a game which ended goalless.

Arsenal host Chelsea on Sunday as they look to remain at the top of the Premier League.

Do you think Thomas Rosicky can make it back into the Arsenal team?
