Abou who? That was our immediate reaction when we heard that Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby was seen back in training. At first we thought that Arsene Wenger may have delved into the transfer market to snap up a new man to help his team get their season back on track, but after a little more searching we finally remembered that the French ace has actually been a Gunners player since 2006. All joking aside, an eagle-eyed photographer has actually spotted the 27-year-old in training after a torrid 12 months of injury set-backs and he could be close to a first-team return. The rangy midfielder – once compared to Patrick Vieira – is the second man in from the left, just in case you’ve forgotten what he looks like.

Abou Diaby is a beast. I think he’s better than ALMOST every Arsenal midfielder when he’s fit and playing well. Good luck to him. #AFC
