Arsenal defender Pablo Mari is delighted to return to full fitness.
The Spanish centre-back is fit and played 90 minutes against Manchester City in his team’s 1-0 loss.
He partnered Rob Holding in central defence, and the duo were beaten to a header in the early stages by Raheem Sterling – whose scored and won the game for his side.
But Mari was delighted simply to get more minutes under his belt.
He told the club’s website: “I’m really happy. I’ve always said that I’m really proud to be here and happy.
“Whenever I play I try to give everything to my team to help my team-mates, to help them and push hard, to help the coach to win games, to help the club.
“I give everything for the club so at the end, I’m really happy when I play. Of course I’m really disappointed when I don’t win because I want to win every week, but I’m happy to come back again.
