Arsenal’s Partey out of action against Chelsea and Man City

Thu 12 August 2021 | 13:01

The Gunners are going to miss Thomas Partey and Eddie Nketiah during the beginning of the 2021-22 season, whereas signings are still uncertain.

Thomas Partey

, the

Arsenal

midfielder, is not going to feature for his side at the start of the Premier League season, including clashes against

Chelsea

and

Manchester City

as he is struggling with injury.

The 28-year-old sustained ankle ligament injury during the Gunners’ friendly defeat at the hands of Chelsea last week and will not return to action for three weeks.

The Ghana international will not play when Arsenal open their season with a battle against

Brentford

on Friday as well as the clashes against Chelsea on August 22 and Manchester City six days later.

He is not going to feature in their EFL Cup match with West Brom in the second round on August 24.

Eddie Nketiah

, who suffered bruising to his ankle during the Chelsea friendly clash, will be out of action for a month.

Whether Gabriel will come back to action is still uncertain as the defender injured his knee when playing at the Tokyo Olympics with Brazil.

Gunners manager

Mikel Arteta

was quizzed about more signings before the transfer window is closed. Arteta’s side has already spent £75million to acquire Ben White, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Nuno Tavares.

Speculations suggested that Arsenal are eyeing Aaron Ramsdale from Sheffield United to give Bernd Leno a competition as well as Inter’s Lautaro Martinez, but the club manager did not give details.

"

In this first period of the transfer window, I think we've done a few things that we wanted to do and that are going to help us get the squad in a much better place,"

he told reporters.

"There is still window to go, so I'm sure things will happen in a way. I'm willing to work with the players I have at the moment and get the best out of them. We will see what we can do.

"We have ownership that they are willing to invest in the team and they want to get the team better with bigger aims. But at the same time we need to be careful because we want to be in a financial position that is sustainable for the club."
