Thomas Partey Faces Extended Absence, Mikel Arteta Confirms

Arsenal's midfield maestro, Thomas Partey, is set to endure an extended period on the sidelines, as confirmed by manager Mikel Arteta. The news emerged following Partey's absence from the Gunners' Premier League encounter against Manchester United on Sunday, marking his first missed match of the 2023-24 season.

During the post-match press conference, Arteta shed light on the severity of the injury, revealing as the club's official website reported, "I don't know. Unfortunately, he sustained an injury during training, and the outlook is not promising. We need to conduct further tests, but it appears he will be unavailable for several weeks. We suspect it's a groin injury, but it could potentially be something in between."

The absence of Partey is a significant setback for Arsenal, as the Ghanaian international has been a pivotal figure in the team's midfield. The news of his injury has raised concerns about the team's prospects in the ongoing Premier League campaign.

Arteta and the Arsenal medical team will closely monitor Partey's condition as they work towards his recovery, hoping to see him back in action as soon as possible.
