Arsenal defensive duo Laurent Koscielny and Johan Djourou have resumed full training this week after recovering from their respective injuries.

Koscielny and Djourou missed the recent games against Olympiakos and Tottenham after succumbing to ankle and muscular problems respectively.

Both players are currently on international duty but did not feature during last Friday's Euro 2012 qualifiers. Koscielny was an unused substitute for France, meanwhile Djourou was suspended for Switzerland's 2-0 defeat at Wales.

The pair are expected to figure when Arsenal resume their Premier League campaign against Sunderland next weekend.
