Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has shared a video of himself on an exercise bike as he works his way back from a thigh injury.
The prognosis on when the Ghanaian could return to full fitness was pretty pessimistic, with it being said that he may not play again this season, but fans on Twitter are now hoping he will make his comeback much sooner than expected:
Doesn’t look like a man who is out for the season 🤔

It’s probably best that supporters not get too excited about this latest update from Partey. Getting on the exercise bike is usually one of the first steps when recovering from a muscular problem so he could still be a few weeks away from returning to training.
There is no chance of him featuring in the games against Chelsea and Manchester United, and you would have to say that it may even be touch and go for the North London derby midway through next month.
