Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has undergone a scan his thigh injury after being withdrawn in their last weekend loss to North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
The Ghanaian international aggravated his injury in the tie and will not travel with his team to Ireland for their Europa League match with Dundalk on Thursday.
Reports from the Evening Standard indicate that the club is waiting to learn the results of the tests and manager Mikel Arteta will update the public about the same when he talks to the press on Wednesday ahead of their Thursday tie.
The former Atletico Madrid man had not played for Arsenal since November 8 and was a surprise inclusion in the tie but couldn’t even make it past the half time where he was replaced by Dani Ceballos.
Arsenal plan to train at their base in London Colney on Wednesday afternoon before flying to Ireland with several youngsters expected to make the trip with the North London club already confirmed as Group B winners.
🗣 Arteta on Partey's injury: "Its in the same area unfortunately. We don't know how bad it is. I was trying to push him back on pitch but I dont think he realised the gravity of the situation when he left his position but thats probably because he was in a lot of pain"#Arsenal pic.twitter.com/knOzgZ6t36— Arsenal News Channel (@Arsenalnewschan) December 6, 2020
