Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is likely to be without Takehiro Tomiyasu for the final game of the season against Everton, according to The Times.
The Times have reported that Arsenal right-back Tomiyasu is unlikely to play against Everton at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday due to a hamstring injury he suffered against Newcastle United.
The 23-year-old, who can also play as a centre-back and was described as a “world-class” defender by his Arsenal teammate Ben White in Goal in January 2022, had to be substituted against Newcastle at St. James’ Park.
Takehiro Tomiyasu blow for Arsenal v Everton
In our opinion, Arsenal potentially missing Takehiro Tomiyasu against Everton is a blow for the Gunners.
The Japan international is one of the best right-backs in the Premier League and was superb in the first half of the season.
Tomiyasu picked up a calf injury in January and did not play until April, and now it seems that he will not feature again this campaign.
Arsenal are unlikely to pip Tottenham Hotspur to the fourth and final Champions League spot in the Premier League table this season.
However, with Tomiyasu in their team, the Gunners would have had had a better chance of winning against Everton.
