Team news: update on Tomiyasu’s availability
Mikel Arteta has not yet ruled Takehiro Tomiyasu out of our crunch Premier League game at the Emirates on Wednesday.
The Japanese defender has missed the last six games with a calf injury, and in his pre-match press conference, the boss said they are proceeding cautiously with his recovery.
“Tomi is the only one that’s still there in contention [to miss the game]” the boss stated.
“We have been trying to push him, but with the handbrake a little bit because we need to be careful as we don’t want to get another injury with him. We don’t know [if tomorrow is too soon]. Let’s see how he trains today.”
