We have to scan Partey again - Mikel Arteta gives an update on midfielder's injury

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has given an update on Thomas Partey's injury and has revealed the midfielder will have to be scanned again.

Thomas Partey has added a positive impact to Arsenal squad since he joined the club from Spanish side Atletico Madrid. However, the Ghanaian international has missed Arsenal's last three games due to the thigh injury he suffered last month.

Speaking ahead of his side Europa League game against Rapid Vienna on Thursday, Mikel Arteta confirmed Partey will be back in action very soon and that he still needs to be accessed.

‘He’s been training separately in the last week or so and we have to scan him again to see how he’s feeling,' Arteta said

‘He’s a player that is so willing, that is pushing us every day and he wants to do it.

‘At the same time, we have to protect him and make sure that when he gets back in the team, he is ready to do that and to whatever extent of minutes we can use him, so it’s going to be crucial with the moment he starts to train with the team to see how he is feeling and how he is evolving day-to-day.

‘We don’t know again, he is really pushing every day and he’s trying to get around the doctor and the physios but he hasn’t trained with the team yet so let’s see this week if he can get a session or two and then assess him, we need to scan him again so we can see the extent of the injury and how it’s healed.

‘I know if it’s up to Thomas then he wants to play tomorrow. We have to see medically that he is safe to participate at all.’
