Injury and suspension list for Arsenal’s match against Liverpool

Arsenal welcomes their Premier League championship rivals to the Emirates on Sunday for a thrilling match as they look to win their first game against Liverpool in the 2023–24 season on the third try.

Earlier this month, Jurgen Klopp’s team ousted the Gunners from the FA Cup; before that, however, they managed to depart Anfield with a point in a thrilling 1-1 draw.

But on Tuesday night, Mikel Arteta’s team made it two straight victories at the City Ground, defeating Nottingham Forest 2-1 due to goals from Gabriel Jesus and Bukayo Saka.

In advance of the match, Sports Mole compiles the most recent information on Arsenal’s injuries and suspensions. The Reds, who defeated Chelsea 4-1 in the middle of the week, have five more points than the Gunners at the top of the table.

Takehiro Tomiyasu

Status: Not Found
Injury type: International
Potential date of return: not specified.

The day before Arsenal plays Liverpool, Takehiro Tomiyasu’s Japan plays Iran in the Asian Cup quarterfinals. Regardless of how his nation does, the right-back will not play in the Emirates match.

Mohamed Elneny

Status: Slight uncertainty
Kind of injury: Global
Date of potential return: February 4 (against Liverpool)

On Monday, the DR Congo eliminated Mohamed Elneny’s Egypt on penalties from the Africa Cup of Nations. As a result, the seasoned midfielder may return to the team for the Reds’ visit, although he will only be considered for a bench spot.

Jurrien Timber

Status: Unknown
Injury type: Knee
Potential date of return: not specified.

While individual ball work is being done in training to aid in Jurrien Timber’s rehabilitation from a severe ACL injury, there is no assurance that the Dutchman will be ready for the conclusion of the season.

Thomas Partey

Status: Very unsure
Injury type: thigh
Date of potential return: February 4 (against Liverpool)

Thomas Partey missed the trip to the City Ground due to a thigh issue that kept him out of action for three months, despite having resumed full training before the victory against Forest. Although Arteta did not rule out the Ghanaian international’s participation in Liverpool’s visit at his pre-Forest news conference, a comeback is very improbable given the short turnaround.

Fabio Vieira

Status: Unknown
Injury type: Groin
Potential date of return: not specified.

Although he shouldn’t be kept in the treatment room for too long, Fabio Vieira is still recovering from surgery on his groin at the end of November, so he won’t be available to Arteta this weekend.
