In a major setback for both Arsenal and Ghana’s national team, Thomas Partey is set to endure an extended period on the sidelines due to a groin injury.

The injury occurred just days before Arsenal’s highly-anticipated Premier League clash against Manchester United, leaving fans and teammates concerned about his absence.

The news of Partey’s injury was confirmed by the Ghanaian Football Association, who announced that the midfielder would not be part of their squad for the upcoming African Cup of Nations qualifier against Central African Republic. This announcement followed Partey’s unfortunate injury during a training session, which also led to his omission from Arsenal’s squad for the clash against Man United.

Arsenal’s manager, Mikel Arteta, expressed his concerns about the extent of the injury, stating, “I don’t know. Unfortunately, he got an injury in training, and it doesn’t look good. We need some more tests, but we believe he’s going to be out for weeks. We think it’s a groin but can be something in between.”

This injury comes as a significant blow to Arsenal, who have already faced challenges with injuries, including the loss of new signing Jurrien Timber due to an ACL tear on his Premier League debut. Partey’s absence will leave a void in the midfield and presents a challenge for Arteta as he navigates through a demanding season.

Looking ahead, Arsenal will have to make do without Partey’s services for an extended period. The Gunners are set to resume their Premier League campaign after the international break with a fixture against Everton on September 17. Partey’s absence will test the depth of the squad and the ability of other players to step up and fill the void left by the Ghanaian midfielder.

The injury serves as a reminder of the unpredictability of football and the challenges that teams face throughout a season. Arsenal will hope for Partey’s swift recovery as they aim to compete at the highest level in both domestic and international competitions.
