Partey suffered a thigh injury and was anticipated to return in the coming month, but the final evaluation reveals that the midfielder is set for a lengthy lay-off.
Arsenal manager Mikel Artete, who was speaking ahead of their match against Southampton, revealed that Partey won’t be accessible anytime soon.
Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey is set to miss the rest of the season after picking up an injury in the game against Crystal Palace.
“Yes, the news that we picked up after a lot of assessments isn’t good. It’s not looking truly positive for his availability this season, but we ’ll have to hold on and see because he’s trying to get back as fast as possible, but at the moment we aren’t really hopeful about it,”he said.
“Yes, in the moment it’s not ideal and we understood that towards the end of the season one of the vital essentials was to have the team available and squad accessible as much as possible, and we’ve quite several issues with him and Tomiyasu as well, but we need to keep up to battle and work in the smart possible way.”
Thomas Partey’s continuous absence is a huge blow for the Gunners, who are winless in their last two games
