Find out the latest Arsenal injury news and expected return dates for Gunners stars who are currently in the treatment room

Arsenal have set their sights on the Premier League title after their record-breaking start to the season.

Mikel Arteta's side are flying high at the top of the table so far, but the Arsenal boss is well aware that he needs most of his star names to stay injury free if they are to continue to set the pace ahead of Manchester City.

So what’s the latest when it comes to injuries at Arsenal ahead of Saturday's trip to Everton? GOAL takes a look.

  • Gabriel Jesus Arsenal 2022-23

    What's the latest with Jesus?

    Arsenal's star striker as not featured for the Gunners since the win at Wolves in November.

    A knee injury sustained during the World Cup with Brazil forced Jesus to undergo an operation in December, ruling him out for a lengthy period of time.

    Jesus is now walking without crutches and a knee brace and on February 1 he posted a picture on social media appearing to show that he had started light training again.

    Mikel Arteta played down suggestions of an imminent return when he last gave an update on Jesus, but the signs are certainly positive that the striker is progressing well in his recovery.

    Expected return date: Arsenal have been reluctant to put a timeframe on Jesus' return, but there is an expectation that he could be back playing some time in March.

  • Reiss Nelson Arsenal

    What about Reiss Nelson?

    Arsenal's winger suffered a hamstring injury during the friendly against Juventus in December and has been absent ever since.

    Nelson has now returned to training, however, as he closes in on a return.

    Expected return date: There is a chance that the winger could be involved against Everton. If not, then he should certainly be fit to face Brentford on February 11.

  • Emile Smith Rowe Arsenal

    What happened to Emile Smith Rowe?

    Smith Rowe made his long-awaited return from injury in the FA Cup against Oxford United on January 9 after four months out with a groin problem.

    But his comeback was halted after picking up a thigh injury in training which forced him to miss the FA Cup fourth round tie at Manchester City.

    Arsenal described Smith Rowe's absence as 'precautionary', but the attacking midfielder remains sidelined for Saturday's game at Goodison Park.

    Expected return date: Smith Rowe will be hoping to be fit for Brentford's visit to Emirates Stadium on February 11, but the exact timeframe for his return is not yet clear.

  • Thomas Partey Arsenal 2022-23

    Is Thomas Partey fit?

    Thomas Partey was forced off at half-time during Arsenal's defeat at Manchester City in the FA Cup fourth round.

    Mikel Arteta revealed after the game that the midfielder was suffering with a rib problem and would need to undergo an MRI scan.

    But GOAL has been told that the scan showed up nothing serious and Partey has since returned to full training.

    Expected return date: Partey is fit to face Everton on Saturday.

  • Mohamed Elneny Arsenal

    How about Mohamed Elneny?

    The Egyptian midfielder has not played since the win at Oxford United in the FA Cup third round.

    It was announced that he had suffered an injury in training before the north London derby at Tottenham, with no timescale given on his return.

    And it has since been revealed that Elneny has had to undergo surgery on his right knee and will be sidelined for an 'extended' period of time.

    Expected return date: Elneny is not expected to play again this season.
