Arsenal dealt huge Thomas Partey injury blow ahead of crucial Manchester United clash

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey is facing a significant period on the sidelines due to a groin injury. This means that the Gunners will be without the 30-year-old for their upcoming match against Manchester United on Sunday.

Partey has been a regular starter for Arsenal in their first three Premier League games this season, with manager Mikel Arteta deploying him at right-back. The team’s only blemish so far was a 2-2 draw against Fulham, where they conceded a late goal.

Despite United’s unconvincing performances, they pose a tough challenge for Arteta and his team. Unfortunately, Arsenal will have to cope without Partey for this crucial clash due to his injury. While the club has not officially confirmed anything, the Ghanaian FA stated that Partey sustained the injury during training and could be out for a while. The Black Stars medical team is closely monitoring his situation.

This is not the first time Partey has missed an important match for Arsenal. Last season, he was absent for their Premier League encounter against Manchester City, which ended in a 3-1 defeat for the Gunners. Partey played a vital role for Arsenal in the previous campaign and is expected to remain an integral part of the squad.

Arteta now faces a selection dilemma and may need to reconsider his tactics against United. One option could be to play Takehiro Tomiyasu at right-back, although Ben White is also capable of filling that role. However, White has primarily featured as a center-back in the Premier League this season.

Arsenal have been dealt a huge injury blow ahead of their upcoming crucial Manchester United clash as Thomas Partey has been ruled out for the foreseeable future.

Partey sustained the injury during Arsenal’s 1-0 win against Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday. The Ghanian international was brought on as a substitute into injury time but had to be immediately substituted after picking up what appears to be a serious thigh issue.

The Gunners midfield will be severely depleted without the services of one of their star players Partey, who joined from Athletico Madrid this summer for a fee of £45 million.

Partey has been hugely influential for Arsenal and his professional style of play has been a huge asset for Mikel Arteta’s side since making the move from Athletico Madrid back in October. The 27-year-old has featured 13 times in the Premier League so far this season, with an impressive streak of form in the last few games.

His absence from this crucial Premier League encounter against Manchester United is a huge blow for Arsenal, particularly given the significance of the 2020-21 season so far. The Gunners are in desperate need of points and wins to keep up the fight for the European places.

This news will no doubt place a huge strain on the team, in a season which has seen unfortunate Sidney and Pablo Mari injuries as well as the COVID-19 issues which have hampered the Gunners has severely.

Still, they will have to find a way to overturn what’s quickly becoming a growing injury list and battle their way up the Premier League table without the influential Partey.
