Video: Mikel Arteta hints at when Partey will return to action

Mikel Arteta has claimed that Thomas Partey should return to full training ‘in a few days’, whilst adding that he wasn’t close to making the Arsenal-Chelsea clash.

The Ghanaian midfielder has picked up just five Premier League appearances since joining the club on Deadline Day back in October, but is expected to return to full training before the the end of 2020.

Partey did return from injury against Tottenham at the start of the month, only to have to be replaced just before the break, and has been absent since.

While he wasn’t close to returning against the Blues yesterday, he should be back in training this week the manager claims.

Will Partey come straight back into the starting line-up?

    He has to be 100% fit before he returns.We simply cannot take chances with a player who is a vital cog in our team.

  2. Jax says:

    Yeah, no taking chances this time. He has to be 100% fit, and Mari is a half decent fit while he recovers.

      Jax, Except they play in different positions. IMO, we have no one in his position who is anywhere near Partey in ability.

    Give him time to be fully fit the season is still a long way to the finish line
