Arsenal have received a blow ahead of their upcoming festive fixtures in December as defender Takehiro Tomiyasu is set to miss the next couple of games due to a calf injury. According to The Daily Mail, the best-case scenario for his return is 3-4 weeks, meaning he will be sidelined for a significant portion of the busy holiday period.

The Japanese international sustained the injury during Arsenal’s hard-fought 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton last week. His absence will undoubtedly be felt by the Gunners, who are currently sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League table with 36 points after 15 league games in the 2023/24 campaign.

Arsenal’s next challenge will see them travel to Villa Park to take on Aston Villa in the Premier League on 9th December, 2023. Tomiyasu’s defensive prowess and versatility will be sorely missed as Mikel Arteta’s side look to maintain their position at the summit of English football.

The Gunners are coming off a thrilling 4-3 win over Luton Town in their most recent league outing, and they will need to find a way to cope without Tomiyasu as they navigate a crucial period in their season.

With tough fixtures coming thick and fast during the festive period, Arsenal will have to dig deep and rely on their squad depth to overcome this setback and continue their pursuit of silverware.
