Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has been out injured since the start of April, and reports earlier this month suggested the best-case scenario was a return to action for the last game of the season against Everton.

But it’s not to be, as Football.London now report that Partey won’t be available for Sunday’s game.

The 28-year-old has been taking part in some individual training sessions, but the medical team don’t want to risk any complications or setbacks by including him this weekend.

Partey made 26 appearances for Arsenal this season, with a few different periods of absence.

The Ghana international missed the start of the campaign with an ankle problem, he spent some time away at AFCON, and he’s been out for eight games so far with his latest injury.

It’s been a mixed bag at best in Partey’s most recent absence. Arsenal have won four and lost four, effectively ending their hopes of Champions League football.

Over the course of the season, Arsenal have lost seven times in the 13 Premier League games Partey hasn’t featured in, whilst they’ve only lost six times in the 24 games he’s played.

The Gunners certainly need him available more consistently next season, and they’ll hope that not risking him against Everton will help him prepare for the next campaign.
