‘Soon’ – Partey drops Arsenal injury hint

The Ghanaian international limped off with a thigh injury during last month’s 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace, sparking fears the 28-year-old would not feature again this season.

In his absence, Mohamed Elneny has stepped up but few would doubt having a player of Partey’s quality available for the run-in would be a huge boost to Arsenal’s Champions League hopes.

While a return date is unclear, manager Mikel Arteta did recently reveal the former Atletico Madrid star was “progressing” and Partey dropped a social media hint in regards to his current fitness.

Arsenal’s official Twitter account posted a clip of Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Magalhaes combining for what proved to be the winner of Sunday’s crunch Premier League meeting with West Ham.

In response, Partey said “Tom X Tom [Takehiro Tomiyasu] soon”.

Arteta’s side host Leeds on Sunday before a huge north London derby away at Tottenham next week, a fixture that would well decide the make-up of the Premier League’s top four.
