Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney has had surgery on a dislocated shoulder. The Scottish international picked up the injury in the 3-1 win over West Ham, and will now undergo three months of rehabilitation.
Sead Kolasinac had to be substituted in the 3-0 defeat to Manchester City after sustaining an ankle sprain. The Bosnian is now rated as a major doubt to face Everton on Saturday.
Dani Ceballos is expected to return to full training this week, following a hamstring problem, but it is touch and go whether he’ll be in the squad that travels to Goodison Park.
It is the same situation fo Hector Bellerin. The right-back missed the losses to the Hammers and City with his own hamstring injury but should be back on the training pitch very soon.
Rob Holding is out of the game this weekend. The centre-back is still struggling with a knee injury and is likely to be out for both the Everton game and the Boxing Day fixture against Bournemouth.
Granit Xhaka will be back on Saturday after recovering from a concussion he sustained against West Ham last week.
