Arsenal injury news and return dates ahead of Everton amid Thomas Partey update

Arsenal injury news and return dates ahead of Everton amid Thomas Partey update

Today, Arsenal will be playing against Everton in the evening Premier League game at Emirates Stadium.

 The Gunners have won their previous two games against Aston Villa and Leicester City, and a victory in tonight’s match would put them five points clear at the top of the league. 

However, Arsenal has struggled in recent matches against Everton, losing four of their last five encounters, including a 1-0 loss last month at Goodison Park. 


To prepare for the match, arsenalbrief.football has provided an injury update for several players from north London, such as Gabriel Jesus, Thomas Partey, and Emile Smith Rowe.

Thomas Partey

Partey was sidelined for several games due to a muscular issue, but he was able to make his comeback in the match against Leicester, coming on as a substitute for Martin Odegaard in the latter part of the second half. 

The 29-year-old midfielder had been out of action for a period of time but returned to help his team secure a victory.

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 problem throughout this season, which has restricted him to only five appearances in the Premier League so far. 

Although he made a comeback with substitute appearances against Tottenham and Oxford United, the 22-year-old was absent from the FA Cup game against Manchester City due to a thigh strain.

 According to sources from football.london, he was left out of the game as a precaution. 

This injury also prevented him from participating in matches against Everton, Brentford, and Man City, but he did make the bench in games against Aston Villa and Leicester. 

Despite the setbacks, the talented playmaker remains an important player for the team.

What Arteta has said: “Really good. Obviously, they needed some minutes and at the moment they haven’t had much exposure for different situations. It was great to see them on the field because we’re going to need them in the next couple of games.”

Expected return date: Everton (H) – March 1

Gabriel Jesus

Jesus sustained a medial ligament injury while playing for Brazil in the World Cup group stages against Cameroon. He has undergone surgery on his knee in London and is expected to be out of action for at least another month, according to sources from football.london.

However, Arsenal is optimistic that Jesus will return to the first-team squad before the international break in late March. The team is set to face Crystal Palace at Emirates Stadium before the break. The Gunners hope to have the former Manchester City striker back in the squad before players depart for their respective national teams.

Jesus recently posted a photo on social media showing him back on the field with a ball, accompanied by the caption “Step by step” and several emojis. He also included the hashtags “alômãe” and “gratidão,” which roughly translate to “hello mother” and “gratitude.” The former refers to his famous phone call celebration to his mother.

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.

Mohamed Elneny

Mohamed Elneny played the full 90 minutes in Arsenal’s FA Cup victory over Oxford United. However, he was absent from the squad in the subsequent 2-0 win against Tottenham due to a knee issue that he had picked up in training before the game. He also did not make the bench in the game against Manchester United.

Earlier this month, the club released a statement announcing that Elneny would be out for an extended period of time, but there was no indication of when he would return. Despite his injury setback, the Egyptian midfielder recently signed a new contract with Arsenal and is currently working towards making a comeback to the team.

Expected return date: N/A
