Thomas Partey will not play against Burnley while David Luiz’s fitness will be assessed before the game.

David Luiz

was out of action after his skull was injured by a collision with

Raul Jimenez


He returned to action in the last game against


, which surprised

Mikel Arteta

as he performed poorly on the player’s fitness in the days before the game.

Arteta said before Sunday’s game against


that the club had not rushed the midfielder back too soon but recurrence of the injury would be a bigger risk.

Arsenal issued a fitness update on their official website on Saturday, which read:

Thomas Partey

sustained a strain to the left thigh during Tottenham Hotspur away last Sunday. 

“This is in the same area of the thigh as the initial strain which Thomas sustained against 

Aston Villa

 on November 8. 

“Thomas will be unavailable for forthcoming matches and is working hard with our medical team in order to return to training as soon as possible.”

“David sustained a deep laceration to the head during Wolves at home on November 29," the club said. "Due to the significant impact, David has continued to be closely monitored for a concussion and has followed all protocols.

"David is now back in training and his fitness will continue to be assessed ahead of Sunday’s match.”
