Arsenal injury news and expected return dates for Everton: Smith Rowe, Tomiyasu, Partey

Arsenal head into the final game of the campaign with UEFA Champions League qualification out of their hands.

The north Londoners welcome Everton to the Emirates while local rivals Tottenham Hotspur travel to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City, with the Lillywhites only needing a draw to secure a top-four finish due to their superior goal-difference.

Mikel Arteta watched on as his side put in a lacklustre display on Tyneside on Monday evening when they lost 2-0 to Newcastle United thanks to a Ben White own goal before a late Bruno Guimaraes goal clinched all three points for the hosts.

It was a result that handed Spurs the edge heading into the final weekend and the Gunners will be crossing their fingers that the Canaries can do them a huge favour on Sunday afternoon.

London has rounded up all the latest injury news that Arteta has to deal with as a number of key players remain major doubts.

Emile Smith Rowe has enjoyed an impressive season so far, but the Hale End star could miss out on the Everton clash, as he appeared to miss out on first-team training on Wednesday.

White had been sidelined for several games, though injuries and suspensions across the backline saw him make an early return against Newcastle after some late fitness tests.

The defender was not involved in training on Wednesday, but could be involved later in the week before the clash.

Gabriel is another who had left it late to start against the Magpies, having been substituted with an injury concern in the North London Derby.

The Brazilian was the final of the four players to miss training in midweek.

Though impressive in his debut season, Tomiyasu has consistently struggled with injury and has already missed a number of key games during the campaign.

It could be set for an early end too, with the full-back coming off against Newcastle, appearing to clutch at his right hamstring.

Tomiyasu was one of four players not involved in first-team training on Wednesday.

What Arteta has said: “We don’t know we have to assess him, but he felt a muscular issue and we test him.”

Tierney will not play again this season after sustaining a long-term knee injury, which he has since undergone surgery for.

Partey has been out of action with a thigh injury since a 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace in April.

The Ghanaian international was not fit enough to play against Newcastle, and football.

Londonunderstands that the 28-year-old will miss the clash with the Toffees, too.
