Arsenal midfielder, Thomas Partey, could make his return from injury for their Sunday Premier League clash with Everton.
The Ghana international has been forced to sit out the Gunners’ last three games, including Sunday’s 3-1 defeat at Manchester United, due to a thigh problem he suffered ahead of last month’s meeting with Fulham.
But Goal reports the player have revealed that his recovery is progressing well and he is hoping to return to full training at some point this week.
Partey’s return return to fitness will be a big boost to Mikel Arteta, with Mohamed Elneny also currently sidelined due to a hamstring issue.
That has left the Arsenal boss with only the relatively inexperienced Sambi Lokonga to call upon during the last two games. And whilst the young Belgian has performed well, having the experienced Partey back available as the holding midfielder will make Arsenal a far stronger proposition.
