It is believed that Partey felt some discomfort in his knee in the warm-up before the match and the decision was taken not to risk him in a friendly.
While the 29-year-old is also not expected to face Nicaragua on Tuesday evening, he will remain with the national team before returning to England as scheduled after the game.
At the moment, it looks as though Partey should be fit to start the North London derby, although fans will be concerned considering he has just only returned to full fitness after being sidelined with a thigh problem.
