Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta is unsure whether Japan defender Takehiro Tomiyasu Will he be ready to return to the field at Wolves on Thursday?

Tomiyasu suffered a calf injury. Consequently, he missed the 0-0 draw with Burnley before a two-week international break in late January. This is the same problem that the Japanese national team’s right-back has faced before. Asked about Tomiyasu’s injury and physical condition ahead of Thursday’s visit to Molineux, Arteta replied: “He’s here. He was repeatedly injured at the same spot.

Therefore, we must be careful with him. But he is practicing hard. Let’s wait and see if he’s ready to go on the pitch.” for the away game Wolverhampton Wanderers Arteta admits it’s a tough job Plus will have to play home ยูฟ่าเบท games at the Emirates Stadium soon again because the game was postponed from the end of last year. “They are a consistent team. 

And really effective throughout the season.” “That’s what the scoreboard shows the results they’ve done. So it’s a very difficult opponent. We will have to face them twice. (in two weeks) is a difficult job as well.”

Asked for an update on the 23-year-old, Arteta said on Wednesday: “He’s there [in training], he had a recurring injury in the same place so we had to be careful with him but he’s been training hard. Let’s see if he’s available or not.”

Since joining from Bologna in the summer, Tomiyasu has become an important part of the Gunners’ defence, playing 16 times in the Premier League.

If Tomiyasu isn’t available, the boss needs to decide whether Cedric (now fully fit) should get the nod or if it’s worth moving Ben White from his usual position in the centre of defence.
