“They were hopeful that he would be alright for the weekend” Important Partey update emerges

Charles Watts has delivered an update on the fitness of Thomas Partey after he limped out of Arsenal’s win over Southampton.

The Ghanaian gave a solid account of himself in the game as the Gunners avenged their FA Cup exit at the hands of the Saints.

The midfielder has been involved in everything good at Arsenal when he has played, and he is one player that the club would do everything to keep fit.

Arsenal will face Manchester United next as they continue to climb up the league table.

The Red Devils were on top of the Premier League table before Manchester City moved ahead of them in the last game week.

They will represent top-quality opponents for Arsenal, and Mikel Arteta will want to have all his best players available for the game.

Watts was speaking on his YouTube Channel and he said that the midfielder’s injury isn’t as bad as first feared and that the club is hoping that he would be passed fit for the United match.

Watts said: “I have spoken to people close to Thomas Partey and they were hopeful that he would be alright for the weekend, and that it was nothing too serious, so fingers crossed on that one.”

    He was training in the photos, as was Tesco – hallelujah! But Auba won’t be available apparently…

      You aren’t confident of winning tomorrow Sue ? 😳

      1. Sue says:

        I’m going with a draw, Kev – and will probably regret it 😆

        1. Kev82 says:

          Yeah 2-2 😳 a draw all but finishes our hopes of top 4 Sue with so many ahead of us with games in hand 😞 I’m backing 3-1 and I expect us to win 😃

          1. Sue says:

            Well, we weren’t expected to beat them at OT!
            Every week we’ve seen some crazy results, Kev, so you never know. I think top 6 is doable…

          2. Kev82 says:

            I know and we played them off the park I’m not even sure Leno made a save, I could have been between the sticks that day 😄 mustafi linked with Liverpool, will they have him Sue ? 😆

          3. Sue says:

            I’m just warming my car up to take him up there tonight 🤣

          4. Kev82 says:

            Haha you won’t miss him then Sue ? 😆. I wonder if AMN goes to Southampton then Bertrand comes to us, if not I wouldn’t strengthen Southampton as if they win they’re game in hand then they leapfrog us 😶 got a new phone today still getting to grips with it haha

    Hopefully we could count with ESR too, otherwise we would probably ser Willian in the starting líne up😭😭

    absolutely love Partey and what he can bring to our squad moving forward, but I would be lying if I didn’t say that I’m incredibly concerned with his perceived fragility since his arrival at the Emirates…what is it about this team and f’ing injuries…fact is he plays a position that’s so demanding on the body that anybody displaying a propensity to be injured simply can’t be counted on…I’m hoping that this might be an adjustment period due to environmental factors (i.e. vastly different weather than he’s normally accustomed to)

      Something we can agree on regarding Partey and his injury problems.
      I’m surprised no one else has honed in on this, especially as we look a completely different team when he plays. There is no doubt that MA brought him back to early, so I am sure he will not take that risk again.
      With a completely new medical team from the AW days, this consistent injury problem amongst our players is a mystery.

        Ken, When looking into all our KEY injuries and comparing to other top sides , THIS season ours are really not bad at all. For many years going back though they have been incredibly worse than our rivals. Not now, IMO!

      2. ozziegunner says:

        Ken and jon, given Thomas Partey’s past availability record at Atletico Madrid, the thigh injury can be put down to bad luck. Hopefully fair sailing and injury free from now on, but it is a contact game.

    Jon, will try and get some more information on this during the weekend.
