Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. West Ham United

Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with London rivals West Ham United.

Should results go their way this weekend, Arsenal could potentially surge to the summit of the Premier League table with victory over West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners reduced Liverpool's lead at the top to just two points with a deserved 3-1 victory over the Reds last weekend, where Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka and Leandro Trossard ensured that Gabriel Magalhaes's freak own goal would not be punished.

Mikel Arteta's men were bumped back down to third place by Manchester City a day later, but should the Citizens and Liverpool fail to win their games on Saturday, the door will open for the North London giants to reclaim their perch.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the showdown with the Irons, who were comprehensively beaten 3-0 by Manchester United last weekend.


Bukayo Saka

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Foot
Possible return date: February 11 (vs. West Ham)

The sight that no Gooner ever wants to see, Bukayo Saka was unable to complete the full 90 minutes against Liverpool due to a foot injury, but Arteta played down his issue as a "kick" and expressed confidence that he would be fine for the weekend.


Oleksandr Zinchenko

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Calf
Possible return date: February 11 (vs. West Ham)

Prior to Saka's substitution, Oleksandr Zinchenko was taken off at half time on Sunday after feeling pain in his calf - a muscle which has often given him grief since his arrival at Arsenal - and his chances of returning for the London derby are therefore not so good.


Gabriel Jesus

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: February 11 (vs. West Ham)

Gabriel Jesus was missing from Arsenal's matchday squad to face Liverpool due to a slight problem with his knee, and while Arteta does not believe that the issue will sideline him for longer than a few days, the Gunners may err on the side of caution given his history of problems in that area.


Takehiro Tomiyasu

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: International
Possible return date: February 11 (vs. West Ham)

Takehiro Tomiyasu's Japan were eliminated from the Asian Cup by Iran in last weekend's quarter-final battle, and with a full week to recuperate and fly back to England, the defender should be in contention to make his Gunners comeback at the London Stadium.


Jurrien Timber

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

However, fellow full-back Jurrien Timber is still rehabilitating from his nasty ACL injury, although he has been named in Arsenal's Champions League squad for the knockout stages, suggesting that he is on track to recover before the campaign concludes.


Thomas Partey

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

Thomas Partey - who has been out since October due to a thigh operation - was pictured back in full training with the Gunners last month, but the injury-plagued midfielder has since suffered a setback in his recovery and will not be available for the derby.


Fabio Vieira

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

Portuguese playmaker Fabio Vieira went under the knife to treat a groin injury towards the end of last year, and while he should not be sidelined for much longer, a comeback this weekend is beyond the realm of possibility.
