A look Into Who Will Replace Partey & Elneny As Arteta Unfortunately Set To Miss Duo

As premier league makes it's way into our screen as well these night. As Arsenal set to welcome home a well respected and former captain. Patrick Vieira and his team the Crystal Palace to Emirates Stadium.

The Gunner's fans will be bracing themselves for a good and deserving warm reception to Palace boss. But the Spaniard ponders on injury to Xhaka as who could eventually come in to partner Thomas Partey.

But now that's not the immediate problem as both the two duo Elneny and Sambi Lokanga are available for selection tonight. However a look into next year as per January the challenges Arteta is going to face.

With both Thomas Partey and Elneny set to face a spell away to feature in Africa Cup of nations. The aforementioned players are set to represent Ghana and Egypt respectively.

Now Sambi Lokanga and Maitland-Niles cannot help Arsenal in the midfield roles for the estimated one month of Africa Cup of nations competitions. These will entirely mean that Arteta and Edu will have to seek alternative options as cove to the players.

And previously Mikel was open to the idea of bringing back former teammate now at Anfield, Chamberlain. The latter had been at Emirates for at least six years and won FA Cup, Carabao Cup and then moved on to Klopp's side.

But with Curtis Jones and Elliott ahead of him in the pecking order. The England International seek other opportunities away from Anfield in a bid to keep alive. His chances of storming into Southgate World Cup squad come next summer.

Therefore Arsenal can try bring in Alex as partnership to Sambi Lokanga while Odegaard takes up attacking side of the midfield just behind three forwards. With a summer spend spree of £160m already under Mike's belt. There are more chances of a loan move to the latter with an option of a permanent deal next summer.
