Video: Arteta hints at a start for Thomas Partey tomorrow

Mikel Arteta appears to be hinting that Thomas Partey could be ready to return to the starting line-up for Arsenal tomorrow, when we take on Newcastle in the Premier League.

The midfielder returned to action when coming off the bench against Crystal Palace on Thursday as he battles to return after two thigh injuries in a row.

Partey had initially fallen foul of injury against Aston Villa in November, before returning to take on Spurs on December 6, but only managed 45 minutes of action.

Should Arsenal bench him again to give him more time to build his fitness with lesser opponents coming up tomorrow?

    Thank God, he is now fully fit to start, but I’ll prefer we ease him in like in the last game to build momentum.

    Honestly, Arteta needs to change. We need to win our next 10 games to have a chance of making top4. Yes. The league table is not looking good at all. Arteta has to change the formation to a 4312 formation. He has to meet with Willian and Pepe and tell them he is not impressed with their performances. That he expects huge improvement from them.
    A formation change is key. Arteta needs to play 3 in midfield.

    Bellerin Holding Gabriel Tierney

    AMN Partey Xhaka


    Lacazette Aubameyang

    The Central 3 man midfield to be chosen from a pool of Ceballos, Xhaka, Partey, AMN and Elneny

    The attacking midfield role should be one of Willian, ESR or Saka(Yes. He deserves a rest. Fatigue/injury will set in soon)

    The front Two should be between Lacazette, Aubameyang, Martinelli and Pepe.

    Loan out Nketiah and Willock.

    Keep Reis Nelson and Chambers.

    Sell Mustafi and Socratis.

    In the event of an injury to Tierney, Saka can play left back.

    AMN should play in midfield consistently. As a box to box.
    Our league table is not looking good at all. We cannot afford to draw or loose our next 5 games.

    I don’t Talk much here…but seriously why are lots of peeps so obsessed with AMN in the midfield … can’t you just see He’s not good enough…Can 3 managers be making the same mistake… AMN can’t play midfield he’s a careless player….. He would lose lots of balls to counterattack..

    1. Skills1000 says:

      I get your point as per AMN. But his energy is needed. We need someone who is efficient defensively and can tackle in midfield. I dont see us buying any creative or top player this January. Reason I want a 3 man midfield. 3 high energy players in midfield.
