Mikel Arteta was asked about Takehiro Tomiyasu’s fitness in the lead-up to Thursday night’s match at Wolves.
The Japan international missed our clash against Burnley before the mid-season break with a calf issue that had troubled him previously.
This is what Arteta said about Tomiyasu – and facing Wolves.
He’s there. He had a recurring injury in the same place so we have to be careful with him but he’s been training hard. Let’s see if he’s available or not.
on the challenge of facing Wolves…
They have been really consistent and really efficient throughout the season, that is what the league table is showing with the performances they put in. So it’s a really difficult opponent, we’re going to be playing them twice [in two weeks] but we are difficult too.
