‘Cursed’ ‘That’s Scandalous’ Arsenal Fans React As Troubling Statistic About Thomas Partey Emerges

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has already missed four more games for the Gunners due to injury than he did during his five years playing for Atletico Madrid.

Evening Standard journalist Simon Collings worked out the number by looking through his appearance record on Transfermarkt, and supporters on Twitter have been stunned by the statistic:

Partey has suffered a recurrence of a thigh injury which has troubled him since he arrived from Atletico back in October. It seems clear that the first time he returned for the North London derby, he was rushed back too early.

However, the injury against Aston Villa was more concerning. The Ghanaian had played seven matches since he returned for the 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace last month. It may be the case that he has played too many games in a short space of time and Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta may have to use him more sparingly once he makes his comeback.
