Good news to Arsenal fans Tomiyasu is Back

Takehiro Tomiyasu is available for Arsenal's match against Brentford in the Premier League. In his pre-match news conference at London Colney on Friday afternoon, Gunners manager Mikel Arteta acknowledged the injury boost while also revealing no new worries. Tomiyasu has missed Arsenal's previous two games due to a recurrence of a calf ailment he suffered against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup semi-final last month.

He has been in training - although apart from his teammates - both before and after the 1-0 win over Wolves, and Arteta has confirmed that the defender will play the Bees. "Everything is OK," Arteta assured reporters. "The concern was Tomiyasu, who is still far from 100%, but he has been training for the past few days, so he is in contention and we can utilize him." That's fantastic news.

"We know Gabi is missing due to his red card against Wolves, but the rest of the team is OK." It remains to be seen if Tomiyasu wins a swift comeback to the Arsenal XI on Saturday, as Cedric Soares and Benjamin White are the apparent choices to continue in his absence. The former was given the start against Wolves, and he did his chances of staying in the team no harm with a strong performance at Molineux.
