Arsenal Football Club manager Mikel Arteta isn’t sure how long Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey’s injury will keep the latter out of action.
He said this in a press game presser ahead of The Gunners Carabao Cup fourth round tie against West Ham United at the London Stadium.
West Ham is on a three game losing streaking after suffering 1-4 to Aston Villa, 1-2 to Olympiacos and 0-1 to Everton heading into the tie against Arsenal.
Partey will miss the game after picking up a muscle injury just before Arsenal’s game against Sevilla on Match day 3 of the UEFA Champions League.
“I think he will be out for weeks. I don’t know how long but he’s got another appointment (medical) today and we will see more after that. I am so sorry for him because I think he is doing everything that he can do right to be there. He needs to lift himself up again with our support because he is a player that is critical for us.”
Partey has missed games against Sevilla and Sheffield United since picking up the injury.
