Arsenal press conference live: Mikel Arteta on Tomiyasu’s fitness, Abramovic sale and top four

Mikel Arteta is set to face the press ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Watford at Vicarage Road on Sunday.

The Gunners go into the game 10 days after a dramatic 96th minutes win over Wolves that left them in a fantastic position as they seek to secure Champions League qualification for the first time in half a decade.

One of the major absences for that game was Japanese right back Takehiro Tomiyasu who faces a race to be fit for this weekend’s match after sustaining yet another calf injury.

However, the big story of this week in football has undoubtedly been Roman Abramovic’s move to sell Chelsea after nearly 20 years of ownership.

The decision could have huge implications on not just Arsenal but the entire Premier League as it is currently unclear how things will change for the Blues.
