Arsenal face West London outfit Brentford in their first game back after the upcoming international break. 

The Gunners bounced back from an underwhelming 1-0 defeat against Newcastle United with a comfortable 3-1 victory against a struggling Burnley side on Saturday.

Despite Fabio Vieira being sent off in the 83rd minute, goals from Leandro Trossard, William Saliba, and Oleksandr Zinchenko were enough to see Mikel Arteta’s side claim all three points.

Arsenal have again had a great start to the season, currently sitting second in the Premier League table with 27 points.

However, the Gunners have suffered multiple injuries to first-team players, including midfielder Thomas Partey.

Arsenal were rumoured to be open to letting Partey leave in January, but that now looks unlikely according to Football Insider.

Partey played a crucial role in Arsenal’s midfield last season

The report claims that a move away may be under threat as the midfielder is set to face an extended period on the sidelines having undergone surgery for a significant thigh injury.

Partey, 30, has been a first-team regular for Arteta’s side after joining from Atletico Madrid in 2020.

The Ghana international has featured in 104 games for the North London outfit, including 40 appearances last season.

The additions of Declan Rice and Kai Havertz saw Partey take on a right-back role in the Arsenal side at the start of the season before he picked up his injury.

That has prompted the Ghanaian to miss a lot of game time this season, and as a result he has only made four Premier League appearances so far.

Partey has been heavily linked with Juventus ahead of January, but his setback has potentially stopped that and he is now likely to stay put in the capital until next summer at the earliest.
