Arsenal injury update

Here is the latest Arsenal injury news ahead of their next Premier League outing.

After four months after with a thigh injury, Thomas Partey is close to making his first-team return for Arsenal.

Partey did not make the squad against FC Porto or Newcastle, but he did return to training last week and is stepping up his recovery, suggesting a return vs the Blades could be on the cards.

Oleksandr Zinchenko has been out since the clash with Liverpool earlier this month. The left-back has been struggling with a calf problem, but Mikel Arteta confirmed recently that Zinchenko is not far from being available again.

Finally, Takehiro Tomiyasu was knocked out of the Asian Cup with Japan earlier this month and has not played for Arsenal since, after picking up a knock while at the tournament. His return date is currently unknown despite Arteta previously suggesting it was only a minor issue.
