Partey had to be taken off during friendly against Chelsea.
LONDON — Arsenal get hit hard ahead of new season, with Thomas Partey's injury. Even the coach Arsenal Mikel Arteta says Partey's injury looks pretty bad.
Partey had to be taken off during friendly against Chelsea, after colliding with Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Partey had received some treatment on the pitch, before being replaced by Granite Xhaka, due to an intolerable ankle injury. Arteta said he had spoken to the doctor, and Partey will have an examination tomorrow.
”Right now it doesn't look good. Because he's in pain and can't continue (competition),” said Arteta quoted from Dailymail, Monday (2/8).
This injury makes Partey even more frustrated. He spent most of last season recovering from injury, after moving from Atletico Madrid.
Arsenal will have their last friendly against Tottenham Hotspur on 8 August 2021, before against Brentford in the Premier League opener.
