Arsenal are back in the Premier League on Sunday following a 2-2 draw with European rivals Sporting Lisbon two days ago.

The Gunners were saved in the first leg of the Europa League round of 16 thanks to goals from Goncalo Inacio and Paulinho. William Saliba opened the scoring for Mikel Arteta’s side in Portugal, while an own goal from Hidemasa Morita equalized.

Ahead of this Thursday’s second leg at the Emirates, Arsenal are set to negotiate a tricky Premier League game against Fulham at Craven Cottage. The Gunners are five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table and don’t want to slip now.

With that in mind, here are the latest headlines from the Emirates…

Fabregas’ Arsenal return clause

Ex-Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has claimed Arsene Wenger refused to re-sign the central midfielder for a second spell at the Emirates.

Fabregas left the Gunners for youth club Barcelona in the summer of 2011 but was ruled out of action three years later. The Spain international then joined Arsenal’s rivals Chelsea in winning two Premier League titles, among others.
