Arsenal injury update following Everton win amid positive Gabriel Jesus update

Yesterday evening, Arsenal played against Everton and had an impressive 4-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium.

 They are now ahead by five points at the top of the Premier League table, with Manchester City in second place. On Saturday afternoon, they will play against Bournemouth at N5. 

Thomas Partey, their first-choice No.6 player, didn’t start in the previous match but did play for 45 minutes as a substitute, which could mean that he may start in the upcoming match against Bournemouth. 


Arsenalbrief.football has provided the latest updates on injury news related to Gabriel Jesus, a centre-forward, and Mohamed Elneny, a central midfielder, before the crucial match.


In the match against Everton last night, Jorginho started instead of Partey, but he was substituted at half-time for the Ghanaian player. Arteta confirmed that Jorginho wasn’t feeling completely well after the game.

What Arteta has said: “And then the team grew especially with Thomas (Partey) as Jorg(inho) was not feeling good today.”

Expected return date: N/A

Thomas Partey

Partey was unable to play for several games due to a muscular issue. 

However, he was able to make his comeback in the match against Leicester, taking over for Martin Odegaard for the last five minutes of the second half. He also played during the second half of the game against Everton. 

Therefore, he should be in good shape to start the upcoming match against Bournemouth.

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.”

Current fitness status: Fully fit

Emile Smith Rowe

Smith Rowe has been troubled by a groin problem for the majority of the current season, resulting in him only making five appearances in the Premier League. 

Although he made a comeback as a substitute in matches against Tottenham and Oxford United, he was absent from the FA Cup game against Manchester City due to a thigh strain.

 This injury also caused him to miss games against Everton, Brentford, and Man City, but he did feature on the bench for matches against Aston Villa and Leicester. 

Despite this, he managed to play the first half of a game between Arsenal’s Under-21 team and Chelsea, and later played for the last ten minutes of a recent game.

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.”

Current fitness status: Fully fit

Gabriel Jesus

Jesus sustained an injury to his medial ligament while playing for Brazil against Cameroon in the World Cup group stages. 

He has undergone surgery on his knee in London and is expected to be out of action for at least a month. 

However, Arsenal are optimistic about his return to the first-team squad before the international break in March. The Gunners have a match against Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium before the break, and they hope to have the former Manchester City player available for selection. 

Jesus recently posted a picture on social media of himself playing with a ball, with the caption “Step by step”, along with emojis and hashtags expressing gratitude and a greeting 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

Elneny played the full match in the FA Cup victory against Oxford United, but he was unable to participate in the squad for the 2-0 win against Tottenham due to a knee injury he sustained during training. 

He was also not included in the bench for the match against Manchester United. Last month, the club announced that he would be out of action for a prolonged period, but did not specify a timeline for his recovery. 

Despite his injury, Elneny has signed a new contract with Arsenal and is nearing his return to the pitch.

Expected return date: N/A
