Thomas Partey is expected to return to training next week, on schedule, but sadly in time for the international break.
Arsenal have had to do without Thomas Partey since the start of the season after the midfielder was injured against Chelsea in what was supposed to be a pre-season friendly.
Arsenal’s latest update, given ahead of the game against City on 28 August, read, “Thomas sustained an injury to ligaments in his right ankle during the friendly match against Chelsea on 1 August. Thomas is working hard with the medical team and is aiming to be back in training with the squad next week.”
Despite being out with the injury, Partey has made Ghana’s provisional squad for the early September international break.
On 13 August, the Ghana FA posted their provisional squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia and South Africa, and Partey’s name was among those listed.
I guess the games will give him a chance to get up some match fitness ahead of the Premier League returning, but still…
