Arsenal's Thomas Partey set to miss next few games with injury

Share This

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey will miss the "next few matches" after suffering an injury in Sunday's north London derby defeat at Tottenham, says boss Mikel Arteta.
Partey had been out for almost a month with a thigh problem before being selected to start Sunday's 2-0 loss, but was unable to complete the game after picking up another injury.

Arteta said it was not a recurrence of the same injury and defended his handling of the Ghana international's return, insisting he had not been rushed back ahead of schedule to face Spurs.

 Heung-Min Son's stunning long-range strike had given Spurs the lead on the counter at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, before Harry Kane double the lead just before half time.

"He got injured in the same area, but not in exactly the same spot as before," Arteta said ahead of Thursday's Europa League group game against Dundalk.

"He had an MRI yesterday, there is an injury there, he will miss the next few matches."

Asked if it was an unnecessary risk to rush him back from injury, Arteta said: "No, he did incredibly well, he was confident. We tested him three times and he had no symptoms.

Arteta added: "But in football you have a lot of unpredictable actions. He went into the floor, his knee got stuck, after he needs to stretch and get up up. Immediately he put a lot of stress in a similar area and he felt it again."

Arsenal will face Dundalk on Thursday evening.
