Thomas Partey will have specialists consultations about a thigh injury that might keep the Arsenal midfielder out for a long time.
The Ghana international was forced off during Monday’s 3-0 Premier League defeat at Crystal Palace.
Thomas Partey now faces a race to be healthy in time to help Arsenal finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League.
After 75 minutes, Thomas Partey was pulled, apparently in discomfort due to a thigh injury.
According to an Arsenal statement that stated that the midfielder will be consulting specialists, it reads “Our No. 5 was substituted during Monday night’s game against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park after aggravating his right thigh. Thomas has since received further assessments, and a subsequent scan has shown muscle damage to his right thigh. We will continue to assess Thomas in the coming weeks, during which time he will also receive further specialist consultations.”
Without Kierney and Partey, Mikel Arteta will be trying to steer Arsenal back to the Champions League. “Everyone will be working hard to get Thomas back on the pitch as soon as possible.”
Having barely been injured during his time at Atletico Madrid, Partey has suffered a number of issues since moving to the Emirates Stadium in 2020. The 28-year-old has missed 21 games after joining Arsenal and that number will grow following his latest setback.
