Arsenal injury update ahead of Everton clash with major Partey update 

Arsenal injury update ahead of Everton clash with major Partey update 

Yesterday, Arsenal won 1-0 against Leicester City thanks to Gabriel Martinelli’s goal, which gave them back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time in over a month. 

This win keeps Arsenal at the top of the league, but Manchester City’s 4-1 victory over Bournemouth keeps them close behind. 

With only 14 games left in the season, Arsenal has a chance to make history by winning their first league title. 

Despite Martinelli’s match-winning goal, there was a slight cause for concern when he was injured after Wilfred Ndidi accidentally stepped on his knee while trying to tackle him.

Martinelli played the full 90 minutes despite the injury scare. Arsenal’s schedule is packed, with Everton scheduled to visit the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday. 

In light of the win, SportsDias has compiled the most recent injury updates from North London.

Thomas Partey

Partey was sidelined from the match against Manchester City due to a muscle problem and has not been included in the matchday squad since then. He also missed the game against Aston Villa, but it seems likely that he will make his comeback this weekend. The 29-year-old is expected to be available for selection for the upcoming match.

What Arteta has said: The question mark on Thomas. He hasn’t trained much but looks like he could be available. Let’s see how he goes today. We’ve missed him in the past few games and hopefully he’ll be back.

Expected return date: Everton (H) – March 1

Emile Smith Rowe

Smith Rowe has been struggling with a groin issue throughout the season, resulting in him making only five Premier League appearances so far. However, he has made appearances as a substitute against Tottenham and Oxford United.

 SportsDias has learned that he was sidelined for the FA Cup game against Manchester City due to a thigh strain and was excluded as a precaution. 

This same injury also prevented him from participating in matches against Everton, Brentford, and Manchester City. He was included on the bench for the game against Aston Villa but did not play. Nonetheless, he was seen training on Thursday.

What Arteta has said: N/A

Expected return date: Leicester City (A) – February 25

Gabriel Jesus

During the World Cup group stages, Jesus sustained medial ligament damage while playing for Brazil against Cameroon. 

He returned to London to undergo knee surgery, with an anticipated recovery time of at least one more month before he can resume playing football. In a conversation with former UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at the Emirates Stadium last month, Jesus expressed hope of returning to the pitch in “four to five weeks.” 

On February 1, the 25-year-old provided a new update on his fitness status by posting a picture of himself training on Instagram. He has since been observed running in another Instagram post with the caption “After eight weeks.”

What Arteta has said: “Doing really well he’s been doing quite a lot of work on the ball already and his rehab is going well. Unfortunately no [with regard to a timeframe]. Ask the doctor maybe he’ll give you one.”

“The knee’s not reacting so it’s really positive. We want him back as quick as possible, but also respecting the timescale that the doctors and the specialists are giving us.”

Expected return date: March 2023.

Mohamed Elneny

Elneny played the full 90 minutes in the FA Cup victory over Oxford United but was not included in Arteta’s squad for the match against Tottenham due to a knee problem that he sustained in training. He was also absent from the bench in the game against Manchester United. In a statement released by the club earlier this month, it was announced that the Egyptian midfielder will be out for an extended period of time, although no specific timeframe was provided for his return. In the meantime, Elneny has signed a new contract with Arsenal as he edges closer to making his comeback.

Expected return date: N/A
