The Wales international midfielder is back in full training ahead of Sunday's meeting with Manchester City at Wembley

Aaron Ramsey returned to full training on Wednesday morning ahead of Arsenal's Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday.

The Wales midfielder has been out with a groin injury for the past fortnight and was considered a doubt for the weekend's Wembley final, but trained with the first team ahead of Arsenal's Europa League clash against Ostersunds FK.

A number of first team players are expected to be rested for the match against the Swedish side with Arsenal holding a 3-0 lead from the first leg in Sweden.

Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka both trained but aren't likely to be involved, while youngsters Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock, Eddie Nketiah and Konstantinos Mavropanos also took part in the session
