Thomas Partey suffer injury blow

Arsenal Football Club and Ghanaian international midfielder, Thomas Partey has sustained what looks like an ankle injury in Arsenal's preseason game against London rivals, Chelsea. Thomas Partey was forced off in the 39th minute after a challenge with Chelsea mate, Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The Ghanaian midfielder was later substituted following the challenge and was replaced just before the mid way point of the game by team mate, Granit Xhaka. Medical analysts say the injury is one of a typical high ankle sprain which could take the midfielder to the sidelines for about 4 to 6 weeks. This could be a big setback for the North London giants with few days to the start of the new season as Thomas Partey is an integral part of the team.

The visitors broke the deadlock in the 27th minute when Timo Werner ease a pass through to Kai Haverts who placed the ball pass his German goalkeeper, Leno. Granit Xhaka levelled it for the Gunners from a Nicolas Pepe corner kick. Tammy Abraham restored the visitors lead in the 72nd minute from a poor passed from Bellerin. The game finished 2-1 with the Blues securing the bragging rights.
