Thomas Partey could be involved in our second leg clash with Benfica, Mikel Arteta has revealed.
The midfielder took part in training yesterday and the boss has said if he escapes unscathed, he’ll take the midfielder with him to Greece.
“Thomas is very close and has a final test today in training,” he said on Wednesday morning. “If he’s feeling good he’ll be available.”
However, Rob Holding will miss out on the trip as a result of the concussion he picked up in Sunday’s defeat to Manchester City.
The defender became the first player to be substituted through the new concussion rule.
David Luiz looks set to replace him as he did against Manchester City.
