Following the Gunners’ success against Manchester United (3-1), Mikel Arteta gave news of Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey.

Ghanaian defender or midfielder Thomas Partey, injured this week in training, will be unavailable for “Several weeks”feared Sunday the coach of Arsenal, Mikel Arteta. “Unfortunately he got injured in training and it doesn’t feel good. We have to do other exams but I think he will be unavailable for several weeks.said Arteta in a press conference after the 3-1 win over Manchester United.

The absence of Partey, used as a right-back since the start of the season, is a new blow for the defense of the Gunners, deprived of their Dutch rookie Jurriën Timber (used as left-back), seriously injured in the right knee during the first Premier League game of the season. On Sunday, Arteta started Ben White on the right and Oleksandr Zinchenko on the left. William Saliba and Gabriel formed the central hinge.

Visibly injured in the groin, Partey is expected to miss Arsenal’s Champions League debut, notably against PSV Eindhoven on September 20 in London and against Lens October 3 in Bollaert.
