Arsenal receives a fitness boost ahead of busy end to February

Arsenal has been handed a boost on the fitness front as Fabio Vieira has returned to training at the club.

Mikel Arteta’s side has been in fantastic form this term, but they have missed the input of Vieira since the end of last year.

He was not a regular in the team before they lost him to injuries, but Arsenal will need all the help they can get from the bench, and he has been unavailable.

Ahead of a busy end to February which also features the return of Champions League football, The Sun reveals he is back in training.

Vieira will offer Arteta an important option in midfield, and the Gunners’ gaffer will be delighted for his return.

The report claims Vieira hopes to be a part of the squad for Arsenal’s Champions League game next week.

Just Arsenal Opinion

The return of Vieira is a welcome boost because we need all the players we can get fit for the second half of the term.

We are now in a very tight title race and want to make progress in the Champions League, so he will likely play a key role in our success in the next few months.

  1. A player that arrives here with high hopes, was once lauded for his versatility, like most of the squad clearly a characteristics the gaffer likes in a player.

    The problem is with some players, when they are shifted from areas terms their best position they goes off the boil.
    Has quality and will one day find easier opportunities.

        1. In my view it is difficult to properly assess Vieira as he has been injured a fair amount of the time he has been here. He had no preseason when he first joined and in this, his second season, he has again had injuries.
          A lot of people have rushed to judge him and suggested he should be disposed of. I disagree and feel that he should be given time to recover. We can then see if he can find his way back into the team and challenge for a starting spot.

  2. Not effective enough for a team of our expected class.

    I would move him on this summer ,without a doubt.

    Just too weedy and not strong enough for our fierce Prem. He was a bad buy, and that is the bottom line.

    To succeed in our PREM YOU NEED FAR MORE RTHAN JUST TALENT . You need strength and never say die attitude, effectiveness to change games and not simply be a tidy, but only bits and pieces player.

  3. Hes a decent squad player and we’ll need everyone fit for the run in. Quietly had an effective start to the season so hopefully can do the same at the end. coyg

    1. How slow do you think fans ought to be to make judgements then ozed?

      Viera is now half way through his second seaon and has shown little to nothing of any REAL Prem effectiveness at all.
      He is unsuited to Prem football and to many of us that has been obvious from very early one. I say that though SOME players ARE slow starters and can and do develop usefullness, many others are PLAINLY NOT of true use to us.
      In my deeply considered opinion, though sadly, Viera is of that no real use type.

      I hope he is let go this summer therefore.
