BREAKING NEWS
          ARSENAL: Mikel Arteta confirms Thomas Partey was withdrawn due to a rib injury. 'Yeah, he felt something, and we didn't want to take any risks, so he could not continue. He had some discomfort, and it was getting worse. Tomorrow, or the day after, it will have to be an MRI scan.'          MANCHESTER CITY: John Stones picks up another hamstring injury. 'Today, he was not ready. I saw it in the first minutes. Maybe he was tired. Today was not ready, and when that happens, you get injured.'          NOTTINGHAM FOREST: Steve Cooper admits Gibbs-White will be sidelined for a 'little while' following the ankle injury he suffered in the Carabao Cup SF first-leg defeat to Man United. 'Morgan is injured. Everyone saw him limp off; he'll be out for a little while, with the nature of what happened.'          BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION: Roberto De Zerbi says Lallana and Colwill are the only injury absentees for Sunday. 'Adam will be missing for a couple of weeks. He is one of our most important players. The stats show with him on the pitch, we have more possibility to win, but we are able to play without him.'          ARSENAL: Mo Elneny has successfully undergone surgery following a setback in training that left him with a significant knee injury. The 30-year-old will be sidelined for an 'extended period' with a more detailed RTP timeframe being established once the early stages of rehab are complete.          SOUTHAMPTON: Nathan Jones ahead of the FA Cup tie against Blackpool. 'We have to use the squad - the schedule is relentless. There'll be a few coming back [from injury],' which will allow the Saints boss to rotate. No specifics, but Theo Walcott has been training. Caleta-Car is suspended.
