Thomas Partey could miss rest of season after Mikel Arteta confirms ‘significant’ injury

[ad_1]

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has described Thomas Partey’s thigh injury as ‘significant’, suggesting the season could be over for the Ghanaian midfielder.

The Gunners have already lost left-back Kieran Tierney to a season-ending knee injury and the sight of Partey limping off late in the 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace had Arsenal fans fearing that they could be about to lose another of their most influential players.

Partey has been sent to a specialist in an attempt to get him back before the end of the campaign, but Arsenal have refused to put a time frame on his recovery.

“It’s a little bit ambiguous but he has a significant injury and we’ll have to keep assessing him,” Arteta said. “He will be out for some weeks.

“It could be [that he can play again this season] but it could not be the case, because it’s an area where he had a previous injury as well and he felt it straightaway. He’s not fit.”
