‘Hello Darkness My Old Friend’ ‘Made Of Glass’ Arsenal Fans Concerned By Latest Injury Update Ahead Of Liverpool Clash

Arsenal’s Thomas Partey did not play in Ghana’s 1-0 win over South Africa yesterday. The Black Stars were hoping to have the 28-year-old available for the game but he remains in London getting treatment on an injury.

The midfielder picked up a groin problem before the 1-0 victory against Watford and, while the Gunners are still hopeful that he’ll be available for the Liverpool match this weekend, fans on Twitter are not so optimistic:

Partey’s injury record since arriving from Atletico Madrid for ยฃ45m has been rather shocking. This is the sixth time he has been sidelined over a thirteen-month period.

Even if he does make it for the trip to Anfield, the Ghanaian international won’t have played for three weeks, raising questions over whether to risk him, knowing full well he would probably not last the 90 minutes.

With Granit Xhaka also sidelined, manager Mikel Arteta may have to rely on Albert Sambi Lokonga and Ainsley Maitland-Niles for the clash against the Reds.
