Video: Arteta looks distraught when quizzed on Partey’s latest injury

Thomas Partey had to be subbed off against Aston Villa at the weekend, and Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has admitted that he isn’t sure how bad the injury will be.

The midfielder was unable to compete the full 90 minutes against the Villains in consecutive matches, having only completed the first-half of their 3-0 defeat at the Emirates back in October, before being hauled off on Saturday also.

This will be the third time of losing our summer signing in only his debut season with the club, bringing back not-too fond memories of losing many previous stars to constant injury issues.

Mikel Arteta doesn’t appear too happy to discuss his injury either, although the loss may well have been on his mind also.

Did Villa do anything in either game to hurt Partey?

  1. I hope I am wrong but Party seems to be very injury prone at the present time. I have have not researched what his injury record was at Atletico Madrid, but his few months with us have not been the best. One could argue that the physical strength and pace of the PL is more than that in the Spanish league and this could be causing Party some problems. It may be he requires some more time to adapt and the same time reduce his injury tally.

    1. As Gab said below, not an injury prone player at all. He has definitely not played nearly enough games to attribute his injuries to the pace/strength of the EPL.

      This is an Arsenal problem through and through. They’ve changed medical staff more than once but the issue remains. Whatever we do, something is not right somewhere.

      Did we get a new training facility when we moved to the Emirates? Issue seems to correlate from around that time.

    2. Then do your research first patH.
      In over 4years he missed just 5games for Athletico. So that’s not an injury prone player in any way.
      Partey is a physical player and applies himself so much. Reason why he gets muscle injuries. It’s something that has to do with fitness to reach Epl standards.

  2. Thomas Partey was not injury prone at Athletico Madrid. In fact missed very few games throughout the whole season.

  3. It maybe something to do with the training pitch at London Colney….we always seem to get the same injuries with different players….they have to look at our pitches seriously.. Partey missed very few games with Atletico….same thing is happening to Martinelli….I will never forget Wilshire and Diaby…very unfortunate.
