Debuchy (ankle) is in the starting XI for Arsenal's Champions League match against Galatasaray on Tuesday.

Debuchy suffered the ankle injury back in September and required surgery to correct the issue. However, he has been training with the first team of late and finally makes his return, though he shouldn't be considered a sure thing to play Saturday against Newcastle following such a long layoff.

Debuchy has been participating in first-team training, but he will not play Saturday against Stoke City, manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Friday.

Wenger noted that the earliest Debuchy could return would be Tuesday against Galatasaray in the Champions League, though it remains unclear if he will retake his starting role from Calum Chambers, who has filled in during Debuchy's absence.

Debuchy (ankle) has been training with the first team and he could return Dec. 13 against Newcastle, manager Arsene Wenger said Tuesday.

Debuchy has been sidelined since suffering the injury Sept. 13 against Manchester City, but he was a consistent starter before he went down and could slot back in when he's fully fit. Wenger has a history of not immediately starting players who are returning from long layoffs, so Calum Chambers likely has a few starts left.

Debuchy has begun working out in the gym and is expected to rejoin full training by the end of December after damaging ankle ligaments, reports the Mirror.

Debuchy posted pictures of himself working out, and may be available for the third round of the FA Cup if his schedule continues to stay on track.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Monday that Debuchy had surgery on his injury left ankle and he will be sidelined for three months.

Debuchy suffered the injury last Saturday against Manchester City and there was a possibility that he may have only missed a few weeks, but he ultimately required surgery that will keep him out much longer. Calum Chambers is expected to start in his place.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Debuchy will have exploratory surgery on his ankle to determine the severity of his injury and if he does need an additional operation, he could be sidelined up to three months.

If Debuchy avoids an additional surgery, he could return in six weeks, but even that it quite a ways off. Calum Chambers is expected to get a majority of the starts in Debuchy's absence.

Debuchy could miss up to two months due to the ankle injury he suffered in Arsenal's Premier League match against Manchester City on Saturday, Le Parisien reports.

Manager Arsene Wenger said after that match "It does not look too good," regarding the injury, a big blow to the Arsenal back line. He suffered the injury when it appeared his boot got caught on the pitch, and he will undergo additional scans when the swelling decreases. He is almost assured to miss time, with Calum Chambers the likely replacement in the starting XI.

Debuchy was sent off after receiving two yellow cards in Wednesday's 1-0 victory over Besiktas.

Fortunately for Debuchy's fantasy owners, the ban won't apply to his eligibility for league play. The attack-minded right back should therefore remain in the starting XI this Sunday versus Leicester City.
