Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas hopes to put his 'weird' season of injuries behind him when he returns from his most recent fitness setback.
The Spain midfielder has not played since the UEFA Champions League last-16 second leg defeat at Barcelona earlier in March, when he aggravated a hamstring injury.
Fabregas returned to light running this week and, while he is wary of rushing back, he hopes to be in peak condition when Arsenal host Blackburn after the international break.
"Everything is getting better," said the 23-year-old during a live video stream on Twitter.
Make it right
"It's been a weird season for me with injuries and I just want to make it right, and I want to come back stronger than ever and fitter than ever so that it won't happen again.
"Hopefully you will see me against Blackburn if I'm fit."
The return of his inspirational captain would be a major boost for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who will be hoping an ankle injury to Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner does not prove too serious.
Bendtner hobbled out of a training session on Wednesday in Helsingor after needing ice packed onto his ankle before being taken back to the team hotel.
