Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has said that he can’t set a suitable return date for Thomas Partey, who is nursing a hamstring injury.
The Ghanaian has experienced a tough debut season with the Gunners and prior to the latest setback, he suffered back-to-back thigh injuries.
Speaking ahead of the Leeds United game, Arteta said that the club need to stay patient after the fresh injury concern for the midfielder.
“It is a difficult one, he felt something during the game and we didn’t think it was too bad but after the scan looked a little bit worse,” he told Arsenal.com.
“He won’t be available to play against Leeds and we will see how it evolves in the next two days but it is a muscular issue.”
The Spaniard has not played for the Gunners since January 14, initially due to a calf problem before remaining an unused substitute.
He will be eager to prove his point against Leeds, particularly after the speculation that Real Madrid want to sign him permanently.
