Partey and Gabriel to rejoin team as Arsenal’s injury list clears

Considering the ridiculous amount of injuries that Mikel Arteta has had to deal with since the new season began, it is amazing to think that Arsenal could have a full complement of fit players for Arteta to choose from by the time we play our next League game.

Of course the one we have all been waiting for is the reappearance of Thomas Partey, who has only played two full games for Arsenal since his deadline day arrival. The official news from said….

Thomas is now back in full training with the squad after recovering from an injury to his left thigh. Thomas will continue to work hard to establish match fitness after being out of action for a month. He will be assessed regarding his availability ahead of Saturday’s match.

Personally I doubt that he would play a full game in the FA Cup against Newcastle, but he could get some minutes to prepare him ahead of our next against Crystal Palace one week from today.
We are also expecting to see our other big signing Gabriel Magalhaes return to action for that games as well, after showing no ill effects from his brush with the coronavirus. They said…

Gabriel previously tested positive for COVID-19. He is feeling well and is showing no signs of illness. Only on the successful completion of the necessary protocols and medical checks in the coming days will Gabriel be able to return to full training with the squad.

Having these two back will be a big boost for Mikel Arteta, and he can at last pick his very best team from the a fully fit squad. At this moment we have no players in the teatment room, and long may it continue.

Palace had better watch out!

  1. Hopefully we can put out a really strong team without Partey as the cup is the back door to getting into Europe. It’s doubtful we will win the EL this year or get into the top 4 so the cup is important.

  2. Partey will breeze back into the team hopefully at Xhakas expense but Gabriel has some competion now in Pablo which is a healthy situation for Afc.

    1. Its important to polish up front even if some of our key players are coming back into the game.
      FA cup becomes to be our door way into Europe.

  3. Great news! Seems like an eternity since we last saw TP!
    Awful news:
    Folarin Balogun close to signing pre-contract agreement with a foreign club. Arsenal want him to stay but no real progress in deal talks & little game time.

  4. Sue, the “Foreign club” could turn out to be Liverpool .It would appear the players agent is the stumbling block to extending his career with Arsenal.The damage these money grabbing leeches bring upon what used to be a “sport” is a primary concern of mine and has been for sometime .Alex Ferguson has a very apt description of the meaning of a ” football agent” but I simply could not repeat his words on this site, much as I agree with him.

    1. Agree, it’s like I’ve said before these players they don’t sign for the club that they want to sign for but they sign for the club that the agent wants the player to go to. Back in the ‘good old days’ the players didn’t have agents they just went in to the manager , discussed terms and then signed. Agents have been a blight on the game. Can you imagine Brian Clough dealing with agents today.

    2. Oh go on Grandad , do tell us that actual word! I want to test Ad Pats infamous spam filter that so often prevents me and others too, using the true words we choose .

      To be serious, what I WOULD LOVE TO DO TO ALL AGENTS WOULD DEFINITELY GET ME BANNED. Your mere “leeches” is very mild and does not properly describe these, ahem cough, cough, “gentlemen”!

      On BALOGUN we have not the power to make him stay if he chooses to leave. We are, after all, now in the 21st century and in a liberal democracy(in theory, anyway!)

  5. Arsenal should support him and keep coz he’s very talented and have a bright future with us here, Always willing to score goal i love him so much and he’s my countryman

  6. Arsenal should avoid making same mistake always. checkout the likes of gnabry, chikweze a mean its unfortunate pls less learn from our previous mistake and move on.
