The full-back played excellently and assisted Bukayo Saka to score. However, Tomiyasu limped off the field in the 79th minute. He appeared to have a calf problem and was replaced by Ben White.
The Japanese player has impressed this season and started Arsenal’s last four matches in the Premier League. That’s why Arsenal fans feel worried amid the busy schedule of December when they are about to clash with Liverpool.
When asked about the 25-year-old’s injury after the win against Wolves, Arteta told Sky Sports: “The medical team must check his condition now.
Tomiyasu felt a bit uncomfortable so we had to take him out.”
In the post-match press conference, Arteta added: “I don’t know, he felt something, I don’t know if it was fatigue or not, we decided to make a substitution immediately.
We don’t want to take any risks. Let’s wait and see what the review will be like.”
