Arteta will have to make a last-minute lineup change because Thomas Partey will miss Arsenal’s title match against Man City.
The top-of-the-table match between Arsenal and Manchester City will be played without THOMAS PARTEY.
The Ghanaian midfielder has played a crucial role in the Gunners’ run for the title this year.
The absence of Arsenal’s key midfielder will not be welcome news given that they have now lost both of their last two games.
Partey sustained a muscular injury and is anticipated to miss the match.
Due to the 29-year-old’s absence, Jorginho might get the chance to make his full debut.
Prior to tonight, Arsenal had not changed a single thing from their previous six games.
Recently, the two teams squared off in the FA Cup, with Man City winning thanks to a goal from Nathan Ake.
Partey took a knock in that match and was forced to leave at halftime, but he came back for their subsequent league match.
But in recent head-to-head matches in the Premier League, the City citizens have triumphed 10 times in a row.
Fortunately, it doesn’t appear that the injury is serious.
