Arsenal could be without Thomas Partey for the 2021/22 Premier League start after the midfielder was forced off against Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
The Ghanaian was named in the starting lineup at the Emirates in the Mind Series clash but seemed to turn his ankle following a tough tackle from Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
He tried to continue after receiving treatment but called for replacement with five minutes to the first half break.

Partey had a troubled first season in England, with hamstring and hip issues limiting him to just 18 starts in the Premier League.
The extent of the injury is yet to be established.
