Arsenal fans will be keen to see their team return to action next weekend as Tottenham come to The Emirates Stadium.
In one of the biggest North London Derbies for some time, Arsenal look like they might have to take on their rivals without a certain Thomas Partey. The Ghana midfielder has been sent home early from international duty and there is a worry among Gunners fans that his is yet another injury setback for Partey.
Since signing, Partey has become a key player for the Gunners. However, a number of injury problems have meant a lack of consistency and ultimately, Partey’s absences have cost Arsenal. Indeed, this season he has already missed four games in the Premier League. Arsenal conceded in each of those games, and succumbed to their only defeat as well, losing 3-1 at Man United.
In contrast, the four games Partey has featured in have all ended with three points. Indeed, the Gunners have only conceded once with Partey in midfield, and it was no surprise his return against Brentford coincided with a comfortable 3-0 win.
