Jack Wilshere came through a second reserve match and Bacary Sagna played for the first time since May for Arsenal's reserves against Reading on Monday night.
Wilshere challenges Danny Guthrie for the ball
Wilshere assisted both goals in the reserve team’s 2-0 win at Barnet’s Underhil Stadium as he edges closer to making his first competitive appearance in 16 months.
The perfect 10?
The club's new number 10 played at the Hawthorns against West Brom last week and could be in line for a return to the first-team's squad away at Norwich City next Saturday.
Wilshere did not score but assisted two goals
Sagna last played against the Canaries when he broke his leg in the 3-3 Premier League draw in May but lasted for 61 minutes against the Royals' second string.
Sagna has not played since May
His injury sustained versus Norwich was the second fibula fracture that he has suffered in the space of just a year.
