Saka and Timber – Latest Arsenal Injury Updates and Expected Return for Everton Clash

Arsenal will conclude their Premier League season with a crucial match against Everton.

Bukayo Saka

Bukayo Saka is anticipated to be fit for the upcoming game against Everton. Arsenal’s hopes for the Premier League title hinge on West Ham’s performance, as the Gunners host Everton at the Emirates Stadium.

Currently trailing Manchester City by two points, Arsenal needs a favorable result from West Ham, who face City at the Etihad Stadium, to keep their title hopes alive. David Moyes, Mikel Arteta’s former boss, could play a pivotal role by preventing City from clinching their fourth consecutive title.

As the season finale approaches, there are lingering concerns about the fitness of defender Jurrien Timber and forward Bukayo Saka. Here are the latest updates:
