Arsenal injury update

Ahead of facing off with Brighton on Sunday, Arsenal have a number of injury concerns to deal with.

Gabriel Martinelli did not make the trip to Eindhoven to face PSV after missing training in the build-up due to a bout of illness.

Martinelli will be assessed ahead of the weekend, but it seems unlikely at this stage that he will miss another game.

Thomas Partey has not played at all for Arsenal since the win over Manchester City in early October, having struggled with a thigh injury sustained in training that later required surgery last month. Partey is expected to miss the remainder of 2023:

“We don’t know, he’s getting a very good evolution in the injury but it’s a bit early to get a timeframe,” Mikel Arteta said on the midfielder.

Finally, Takehiro Tomiyasu suffered a calf injury during the latter stages of Arsenal’s 2-1 home win over Wolves on December 2. Arteta later confirmed that he would be sidelined for ‘a while’ with the issue after a scan. Reports have since stated that the right-back is facing a lay-off of between four and six weeks.
