Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has possibly ruled out Thomas Partey for the rest of the season following his injury two weeks ago. Speaking today ahead of tomorrow’s match against Southampton Arteta said that they are both hopeful but the tests carried show otherwise as the midfielder might not play again this season. Partey was just trying to regain his form having had a rough start to his Arsenal career but the injury will possibly derail him.
The Ghana international midfielder is working hard with the hope that he will get a chance to help Arsenal in their fight for a Champions League spot but it is looking unlikely that he will make it. “Yes, the news that we got after a lot of assessments is not great. It’s not looking very positive for his availability this season, but we’ll have to wait and see because he’s trying to get back as quickly as possible, but at the moment we are not very optimistic about it.” Arteta said.
He however did not specify how they will fill the gap as Granit Xhaka played at left-back last week hence leaving a huge gap in the midfield. It is the hope of Arsenal fans that Belgium international Sambi Lokonga will be able to fill his boots.
