Gomis started just 21 games for Swansea last season, but managed to score eight goals after a late-season push.

The Frenchman's ascendance corresponded with the departure of teammate Wilfried Bony, as he buried eight of his nine strikes in the second half of the season, including five goals in the final six matches. Gomis is under contract with Swansea until 2018 and will be back as the go-to striker next season.

Gomis (hamstring) netted his sixth goal of the Premier League season against Arsenal on Monday despite starting the match off the bench.

Gomis had been off the pitch since Apr. 11 with a hamstring injury so manager Garry Monk decided to err on the side of caution by using him as a substitute in just the 74th minute of the match. Despite the short time on the pitch, the 29-year-old proved his position as Swansea's biggest threat to score in any given match Monday. He'll look to reenter the starting XI against Manchester City on Sunday.

Gomis (hamstring) will play in Monday's match against Arsenal, according to manager Garry Monk.

Gomis has been off the pitch since Apr. 11 but returned to training and will almost certainly retain his spot in the starting XI. His reinsertion back into the lineup is timely since fellow forward Nelson Oliveira (ankle) is likely done for the remainder of the season.

Gomes could return from a hamstring injury to face Arsenal next Monday after being out of action for almost a month, reports the Daily Mail.

The forward increased his training this week, and hopes to be available to face Arsenal. He has been out since Swansea's draw with Everton in mid-April.

Gomis has been ruled out for 3-to-4 weeks after suffering a hamstring injury last weekend against Everton, the club's official website reports.

Gomis has been a consistent starter for the Swans ever since they sold Wilfried Bony to Manchester City in January, but they'll now have to likely go with Nelson Oliviera, who recently recovered from an ankle injury, or Marvin Emnes, who came on for Gomis in last weekend's match.

Gomis will have scans performed on his hamstring after pulling up lame after a shot attempt during Saturday's match against Everton, manager Roberto Martinez said.

Gomis came into the match with three goals in his last two games, but he obviously didn't get nearly enough time to try to extend his streak. Manager Garry Monk said the club is hopeful it is nothing too serious, though they won't know for sure until the results of the scans are completed.

Gomis suffered a hamstring injury in the first half of Saturday's match against Everton and had to be subbed off before playing even 20 minutes, according to the South Wales Evening Post.

Gomis ripped off a rattling shot just moments before suffering the injury, though it was saved on a heroic stop by Tim Howard. With Nelson Oliveira out with a foot injury, Marvin Emnes replaced Gomis.

Gomis scored on both shots he attempted during Saturday's 3-1 victory over Hull City.

That makes four goals in the last five starts for Gomis, who is clearly taking to his new role as the featured striker in the Swansea attack. The Frenchman will look to continue his prolific run of form against Everton next week.
