Forgotten Arsenal ace scores wonder goal on return as Mikel Arteta handed title boost

Timber resumed training at the end of February ahead of his appearance on Monday night. And following his return to action at Blackburn, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta will be desperate to see him pull on the Gunners shirt for the first-team.

“Still he’s got a few steps to make,” Arteta told reporters ahead of Arsenal’s defeat to Aston Villa earlier this month. “He needs to play at least a game with the [Under] 23s. We’re going to have an in-house game too soon. He’s done everything in training. Now it’s about getting him match fit, having people around him and competing in a football match which is different to training.

“Hopefully [he can give us] a lot. From what we’ve seen in training and the time that he was fit, he’s going to have a big, big impact in the team.”
