Ghanaian Midfielder Thomas Teye Partey is set to return for Arsenal when they travel to Anfield to play Liverpool in the Premier League this weekend.
The 28-year old picked up a thigh strain ahead of the Gunners’ 1-0 win against Watford a fortnight forcing him to miss his country’s crucial World Cup Qualifiers against Ethiopia and South Africa last week.
Although Mikel Arteta has options in Mohamed Elneny and Sambi Lokonga, the club’s medical team are confident that first-choice Partey will be ready for the weekend’s game.
With five Premier League managers already losing their jobs this season, Arsenal seem to be reaping the reward for their continued faith in Mikel Areta despite an underwhelming start to the season.
The Spanish manager has turned things around and the Gunners are now undefeated in their last 10 games in all competitions ahead of the visit to Anfield.
There is also a feel good factor at the club with the trio of Aaron Ramsdale, Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe all enjoying success with England, helping Gareth Southgate’s qualify for the World Cup.
Aaron Ramsdale has particularly been a success story, with the former England U21 goalkeeper deservedly making his debut for the Three Lions having been in fine form for for Arsenal since joining in the summer.
