Arsenal handed injury boost ahead of Brighton clash

Premier League giants Arsenal have, on Thursday, been afforded a boost on the personnel front.

Mikel Arteta’s troops are, of course, currently preparing for their next crucial outing, amid the club’s ongoing pursuit of glory in England’s top-flight.

After getting the better of Brighton & Hove Albion in their post-World Cup break return to action earlier in the week, the Gunners, next time out, will turn their attentions towards a showdown with Roberto De Zerbi’s high-flying Brighton & Hove Albion.

And, as alluded to above, late this evening, the Arsenal faithful have been made aware of some altogether positive developments in camp at London Colney.

This comes in the form of the return to training of a key member of Mikel Arteta’s squad.

The individual in question? Takehiro Tomiyasu.

Full-back Tomiyasu was forced to sit out the Gunners’ Boxing Day downing of West Ham, owing to an injury problem picked up whilst on international duty with Japan.

As showcased in the image below, though, this afternoon, the former Bologna standout was back amongst the action at London Colney.

It now remains to be seen whether or not Tomiyasu is deemed fit enough to feature at the Amex Stadium on Saturday evening.
