Takehiro Tomiyasu made his long awaited return to the starting lineup when Arsenal beat West Ham 2-1 on Sunday, but the defender, who has been sorely missed, was substituted after 78 minutes.

As the Arsenal physio attended to the fullback, who had put the ball out so he could receive treatment, he could be seen clearly pointing to his left calf.

With only three weeks left in the season, and the problem that Tomiyasu’s calves have caused him this season, you would have assumed his season was over and we would have to rely on Cedric to help us across the Champions League finish line, however after the game, Mikel Arteta was unconcerned.
