Insider tips key Arsenal star to return to action against Brentford

Charles Watts has claimed that Thomas Partey is expected to return to action for Arsenal against Brentford this weekend.

The midfielder played every minute of our opening three league matches as we stormed to the top of the table, but has been struggling with an thigh issue since, but finally looks to be back to help our bid to retain top spot in the table when we take on the Bees on Sunday.

There had been worries over whether the fixture would go ahead, especially following the postponement of our clash with PSV on Thursday, but after the Premier League officially got the go-ahead to play, albeit at a slightly earlier kick-off time, we are now preparing for our return to action.

Granit Xhaka and Albert Sambi Lokonga have been holding down the fort in the two central midfield roles in his absence, with Mo Elneny also out with injury, but the Ghana star will be set to ease the pressure on the two this weekend.

While Lokonga has shown that he is more settled in our side this term, Partey will still be a big boost to our team as we look to continue our fine start to the new campaign, and with fixtures set to pile up, we would do well to not overuse any of our players in risk of further adding to our injury woes.

  1. Sadly, I suspect Partey’s injury is of that type which will keep recurring.

    They don’t know what’s causing it and from experience of those, they end careers.

    If it’s what I think it is, it’s something that twinges as you move, but only certain movements now and again, so you never get used to it – adjusting your movements to compensate or pre-empt the twinge affects co-ordination.

    I hope I’m wrong, but I suspect Partey’s done.

    1. I also Hope your wrong 🤞
      On the other hand you would think the manager and the board have seen what a huge difference a high quality midfield of Parteys type makes to the whole team and would replace with a less injury prone player of similar quality or better 🤔

  2. Its not wether he is returning from injury but how long can he last. If he is going to keep breaking down every two or three games, then that is no good. We need a Partey for far more games and we need to rotate and rest him.
