Arsenal in Limbo As Key Players Stay Sidelined Ahead Of Brighton's Premier League Clash

Arsenal football club has been dealt with a blow after Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney were ruled out of the squad to face Brighton and Hoves Albion on Saturday. 

The duo are key players in Mikel Arteta's squad and their injuries are likely to affect the teams ability to secure a top-four spot in the Premier league table. 

Multiple sources have revealed that the gunners, currently fifth in the EPL table, are facing problems due to a small squad. Five players including, Pierre Emerick Aubamayang, Maitland Niles, Calum Chambers, Pablo Mari among others left the gunners, creating a vacuum in the squad.

In today's match Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey is set to be sidelined after picking up a thigh injury in their defeat at Crystal Palace last Monday. The Ghanaian left the field few minutes after the half-time break against Crystal Palace, with Arteta saying he sustained a serious thigh injury. 

"The scan has shown muscle damage to his right thigh. We will continue to assess Thomas in the coming weeks, during which time he will also receive further specialist consultations.", Arteta said in a statement. 

Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey are expected to miss the rest of the season.
