Arsenal injury latest including Kieran Tierney and Lucas Torreira updates

Arsenal have been handed a massive injury boost with Lucas Torreira and Kieran Tierney nearing match fitness.

Torreira didn’t feature in the Europa League against Olympiakos this week. The midfield enforcer had been suffering from an illness.

However, the Gunners have now revealed he is available to play against Everton.

Tierney, meanwhile, has been ravaged by injuries since signing from Celtic in the summer.

He’s been crocked with a shoulder problem since December. A return to the first-team fold is now imminent, though.

The Scot is participating in group training sessions and should be fit enough to play at the end of the month.

Mesut Ozil could start against the Toffees, but Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Cedric Soares remain out of action.

Arsenal’s performances have been slowly improving under Mikel Arteta.

After a run of stalemates, the Gunners battered Newcastle 4-0 last weekend and secured a hard-fought 1-0 win over Olympiakos.

The side are still undefeated in 2020 and Arteta has hinted his side are becoming increasingly resilient.

“I think the attitude with which I want the players to play with is to confront the opponents,” he explained.

“It doesn't matter where we play, we have to go there and face them and they have to feel that we are ready to go.

“Not just when we have the ball, but when we don't have the ball we have to have the same attitude and aggression.

“They are doing it, you know, I can only praise them because they are trying as hard as they can.

“Sometimes, we can be better or worse, but they are very good.”

Nevertheless, with his team languishing in the bottom half of the table, Arteta is adamant that the team still has plenty of work to do.

“I think we have a long way to go in this process to develop a lot of things that I want to implement, but we need time.

“We have to maintain the things that we're doing well and every day we have clear margins of improvement that we have to achieve as well.”
