Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has voiced his concerns regarding midfielder Thomas Partey’s injury, which prevented him from participating in the team’s recent triumph over Manchester United.
Partey was sidelined from the Premier League clash due to a groin injury. However, despite his absence, Arsenal secured an impressive 3-1 victory, with late goals from Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus.
Partey, who was present at the Emirates Stadium to support his teammates, faces an uncertain recovery timeline. Arteta suggested that the injury may be more serious than initially anticipated.
Arteta remarked, “It doesn’t look good. We need a few more tests, but he felt something in training, and I think he will be out for a couple of weeks. He had the capacity to play in various positions, and today was a game for him to play in a different position, but he is not available.”
Due to this injury, which is reported as a groin problem, Partey will also miss international duty with the Ghanaian national team, the Black Stars, as they prepare to face the Central African Republic on Thursday.
