Injury updates: Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney

 

Mikel Arteta says it ‘seems unlikely’ that either Thomas Partey or Kieran Tierney will be available for a couple of big matches this week.

 

Arsenal are currently facing one of their tougher weeks of the season so far. First up, they play their first Europa League knockout match, the first leg away to Benfica. Then, they’ll host league leaders Manchester City – who are on a 16-game winning streak.

 

Sadly, it’s looking like they’ll have to make do without two of their key players in Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey. Both have had injury problems recently, and Mikel Arteta didn’t seem too optimistic about them returning to action this week.

Arsenal’s Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey receives medical attention during the English Premier League football match between Aston Villa and Arsenal at Villa Park in Birmingham, central England on February 6, 2021.

 

“It seems unlikely at the moment. But probably if there is one player who has got a bigger chance, it’s Kieran, because probably in the next few days he can start to do some parts with the team,” Arteta revealed.

 

“But I don’t know how it is going to evolve when he gets a little bit closer to training with the group.”

 

 

Tierney has had a couple of issues with his right leg, and Arteta’s last update confirmed he’ll rejoin training this week. However, that return to training doesn’t necessarily mean a return to the pitch just yet, as they need to evaluate the condition of his knee.

Kirean Tierney has been having fitness issues over a couple of weeks

 

As for Partey, he has a hamstring problem, and reports suggest he’s likely to miss both legs of the Benfica tie. Nothing in Arteta’s most recent comments contradicts that assessment.

Just In: New pictures of Arsenal’s 2021/22 away kit leaked

Published

on

The first pictures of Arsenal’s first team squad sporting next season’s away kit have been leaked.

After this season’s, bloodshot eyes shirt, the club are returning to a more traditional yellow and blue combination for 2021/22.

The shade of yellow – ‘pearl citrine’ in adidas parlance – may look a little like custard but the use of the stripped-back cannon badge is a nice touch.

We expect to see similar shots of the home and third kits in due course. The latter is predicted to be blue with a lightning motif inspired by the kits of the mid-nineties.
