All the latest injury news surrounding Arsenal and Brighton as the two sides prepare to face off in the Premier League.

Arsenal are now preparing to face Brighton as they look to keep up their Premier League title chase going into the final games.

It remains unlikely the Gunners will win the title after handing over control to Manchester City, but there is still hope for now, and Arsenal are going to have to keep winning if they want to keep those hopes alive. Mikel Arteta’s men face Brighton on Sunday in what should be another stern test, with the Seagulls looking to bounce back from a shock defeat to Everton to maintain their European hopes.

Ahead of this clash, Arsenal have been battling as many as four injury concerns, with the long season taking its toll.

Takehiro Tomiyasu and Mohamed Elneny are both out for the season, but there is still hope over the returns of William Saliba and Oleksandr Zinchenko. Asked if Zinchenko was out for the season, Arteta replied: “No.” He will miss this one, though, while Saliba is a doubt for this game.

“We have another session tomorrow before the Brighton game,” Arteta said in his press conference. “We’re trying to get players back before that day. With William it’s for sure he’s not gonna be fit for this game and we’re doubting him for next game. With William that is for sure [that he will be out], and he will doubt for the next game.”

As for Brighton, Solly March and Adam Webster are both sidelined, while Jeremy Sarmiento, Tariq Lamptey, Adam Lallana and Jakub Moder are also out for the Arsenal clash. There is, however, some small hope Joel Veltman can bounce back from a thigh injury, but he remains very much a doubt. Brighton are currently in seventh place, one point ahead of Aston Villa with two games in-hand to play.
