‘Our Best January Signing So Far’ ‘Time To Cook’ Fans Delighted As Arsenal Get Massive Injury Boost

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has been pictured back out on the training pitch at London Colney.

The Ghanaian international has not played since October, having undergone an operation on a thigh injury which has taken longer than expected to recover from.

Fans on X are ecstatic that Partey is nearing a return to full fitness with some key fixtures coming up over the next few weeks and months:

When will Partey make his comeback?

There is optimism that the 30-year-old could even make the matchday squad for the Gunners‘ next game against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday evening.

After spending 3 and a half months on the sidelines, Partey is only likely to be fit enough for a brief cameo off the bench. He could, though, have a more prominent role when Mikel Arteta’s side take on Liverpool and West Ham in subsequent league fixtures.

Arsenal have 4 other players out injured

Both Declan Rice and Gabriel suffered knocks in the win over Crystal Palace last weekend, but there is an expectation that they will be fit for the Forest match next week.

Fabio Vieira is also said to be close to making his comeback after groin surgery, while there is now some confidence that Jurrien Timber could return to team training next month, with the Dutchman having made a quicker-than-expected recovery from an ACL injury.
