Europa League: Arteta gives update on Partey’s injury ahead of Benfica clash


Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has said Thomas Partey will have a fitness test on Wednesday, ahead of their crucial Europa League clash with Benfica.

Partey has not featured for the Gunners, since limping off against Aston Villa with a hamstring injury earlier this month.

The Ghana midfielder has missed the last three games in all competitions.

But he returned to full training on Monday and could fly out to Athens for the second leg of the last-32 tie.

While speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of the game against Benfica, Arteta said: “Thomas is very close. He has got a final test today (Wednesday) in training and if he is feeling good, he will be available to play the match.”
