Arteta Provides Powerful Partey Injury Update Ahead Of Man Utd Clash

Thomas Partey limped off during the second half of Tuesday’s 3-1 win at Southampton, raising fears he could miss this weekend’s meeting with United at Emirates Stadium.

Speaking on Thursday, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta admitted he was unsure whether Partey or Emile Smith Rowe, who also picked up a knock against Southampton, would be fit to play Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

However, according to Goal, the £45 million summer signing from Atletico Madrid has recovered well, with sources close to the player confident he will be available for Saturday’s game.

The Ghana international will undergo one final check on Friday, when he is expected to be given the green light to play.
