Latest Arsenal Injury News: Updates On Tomiyasu And Smith Rowe
Takehiro Tomiyasu’s recent ailment has been downplayed by Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.
The Japanese international suffered a hamstring injury in last week’s 1-0 win against FC Zurich, forcing him to be replaced after being sent on as a substitute himself.
Arteta, on the other hand, thinks Tomiyasu avoided being absent for an extended amount of time by catching the issue early. He will still be unavailable for the games against Brighton and Wolves, but he will be available for the World Cup.

With both Oleksandr Zinchenko and Mohamed Elneny having returned to full health in the last week, the Gunners are down to one injured player.
Emile Smith Rowe had an operation on a chronic groin problem well over a month ago but, so far, there has been no estimate given by the club as to when the 22-year-old could make his return to first team action.
