Lucas is back in our squad for the EFL Cup quarter-final against Southampton.
The striker picked up an ankle injury during our fourth-round win over Reading five weeks ago, but he’s back in time for our next game in the competition.
Olivier Giroud misses out with a slight groin problem, while Mathieu Debuchy has been sidelined by a hamstring injury.
“Mathieu has a scan today [Tuesday] but we don’t have the results yet,” Arsene Wenger told Arsenal.com.
“Lucas is in the squad and will will have a mixture of youth and experience, but still 90 per cent of the first-team squad.”
