Arsenal given injury boost ahead of Leeds United game

Arsenal star Thomas Partey could be available for this weekend’s game against Leeds United, according to reports.

The 27-year-old joined the Gunners this summer from Atletico Madrid after the Londoners activated his £45m release clause on deadline day.

Partey had been a long-term target for Arsenal and Mikel Arteta. He had been a regular for the Spanish giants since he broke into their first team during the 2015/16 season.

The midfielder made over 180 appearances for them and he helped them win the Europa League in 2017/18.

Partey has also been a key player for Ghana after making his senior debut in 2016. He has scored ten times from his 30 appearances for his country so far.

He made his debut for the Gunners in October as a substitute in their 1-0 loss to Manchester City. A few days later, he started his first game for his new club in the Europa League against Rapid Vienna.

The Ghanian international had made a promising start to life at the Emirates, but he suffered a hip injury in December that kept him out for nine games.

Partey made his return to action off the bench against Crystal Palace on January 14. He has gone onto start five straight games for the Gunners, but he was forced off late-on against Aston Villa on Saturday.

Despite this, Football London have revealed that Partey’s injury is not as bad as first feared. The report adds that the midfielder has a chance to play a part for Arsenal against Leeds United on Sunday.
