Arsenal injury update

Here is the latest Arsenal injury news ahead of their meetings with Lens and Wolves.

Fabio Vieira remains suspended in the Premier League after his red card against Burnley.

Thomas Partey has played just 15 minutes for Arsenal since August. The midfielder had a procedure on a “significant” thigh injury earlier this month and is expected to be out for at least the rest of the year.

“I said that hopefully it’s going to be weeks and not months and he’s working towards that,” Mikel Arteta recently said.

“He needs support. Hopefully the injury will heal in the right way and we’ll have him back because he is a big player for us.”

Emile Smith Rowe started against Sheffield United at the end of October, in what was his first Premier League start for 524 days. However, he was unable to build on that as he picked up a knee injury and has been on the sidelines since, with it confirmed at the time that he was facing “weeks” out.

Jurrien Timber has been out since August with an ACL injury. Arteta was asked last week whether Timber will be able to continue his rehabilitation on grass soon, responding: “I hope so.

“Doing what kind of activity that’s something very different. He’s been for a few walks but that’s very far from competing. But he’s in a good place.”
