Partey is an important player for Arteta and Arsenal because of what he brings to the team in terms of defensive quality and also the calm way he controls the game.
So many fans were not happy when it was earlier reported that he won’t be available for the match against Manchester United, but thanks goodness Arsenal had a good game all round and won 3-1 convincingly
Arsenal is braced for a significant absence without Thomas Partey, who is expected to be out for six weeks after suffering an injury during a training session last week.
Partey has been used in an unorthodox right-back spot this season under Mikel Arteta’s management while retaining an important component of the club’s playing style.
Arsenal must resort to their usual back four due to Partey’s injury, but the vacuum created by his absence is likely to be enormous.
The midfielder is now expected to remain out for over two months, with Arsenal expecting him to return after the October international break, according to the Daily Mail.
