Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Everton

Sports Mole rounds up all of Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Everton.

Arsenal make the trip to Everton on Saturday evening aiming to recover from their worst start to a season after 13 top-flight matches since 1974-75.

The Gunners played out a 1-1 home draw with Southampton on Wednesday and are now winless in six Premier League games, losing four of those.

With the pressure growing on boss Mikel Arteta, Arsenal could really do with kickstarting their campaign at Goodison Park this weekend.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the match on Merseyside.

Thomas Partey

Status: Out
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: Unknown

Arteta defended his decision to rush Thomas Partey back from injury for the recent North London derby after the midfielder aggravated the issue. The ex-Atletico Madrid man has missed the Gunners' last three games and will play no part this weekend.

Gabriel Martinelli

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: December 19 (vs. Everton)

Long-term absentee Gabriel Martinelli has not played since March, but he is back in training and came through an Under-23s game unscathed last week. Arteta will not rush the young forward back, so a post-Christmas return to senior action is most likely.


Granit Xhaka

Return date: December 26 (vs. Chelsea)

Arsenal's injury list may be clearing up, but they will be without a couple of players against Everton through suspension. Granit Xhaka is one of those that will be absent after being sent off for grabbing Ashley Westwood's throat during the loss to Burnley.

Gabriel Magalhaes

Return date: December 22 (vs. Manchester City)

Gabriel Magalhaes picked up two bookings in the draw with Southampton and will now serve a one-match suspension.
