Arsenal Star Thomas Partey injured and ruled out of Leeds United clash
Thomas Partey was taken off at half-time during the 3-0 defeat against Aston Villa before
the international break and subsequently missed Ghana’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header
against Sudan. Partey continued his rehabilitation at Arsenal’s London Colney training center but the club
has confirmed he is yet to make a full recovery and will miss the trip to Elland Road.
Thomas Partey injured, Arsenal are back in Premier League action on Sunday, but manager Mikel Arteta
has several injury and fitness concerns to contend with.
The Gunners will make the trip to Elland Road to lock horns with newly-promoted Leeds United as they
aim to put their most recent defeat to Aston Villa behind them.
After a brilliant 1-0 away win over Manchester United on November 1, there were high hopes within
the Arsenal camp that the club could head into the latest international break with another three points
to their name but those hopes were dashed by Dean Smith’s men.
Ahead of the trip north, Arteta does have a few injury and illness troubles to contend with, meaning he may be
forced to wait as long as possible before deciding on his starting line-up.
