Press conference

Team news: Updates on Tomiyasu and Smith Rowe

Mikel Arteta issued a positive update when asked about the fitness of Takehiro Tomiyasu and Emile Smith Rowe in his pre-Brighton & Hove Albion press conference.

Tomiyasu has not played since completing the full 120 minutes of Japan's World Cup last-16 defeat to Croatia, while Smith Rowe's last appearance came in our Premier League match at Manchester United in September.

"[Tomiyasu] is getting closer and closer," Arteta explained. "He’s been training with us, so he’s available.

"[Emile] has made some big steps in the last week or so. He’s taken part in a few training sessions lately and he’s looking good. We’re looking forward to having him back soon."
