Robin van Persie made a successful return to training on Friday and has been included in the squad for the game with Sheffield United on Saturday.

In Thursday's interview with ATVO, Arsène Wenger revealed Thierry Henry was certainly back after a foot problem and his Dutch team-mate was likely to follow suit following a hip complaint.

The manager confirmed the news at his pre-game press conference.

"We have Thierry back and Van Persie back although Robin only practiced today while Thierry has been practising all week," said Wenger.

The manager also confirmed he was likely to return to a 4-4-2 formation despite the 1-0 at Manchester United last Sunday playing 4-5-1.
