Partey set for scan after ankle injury during Chelsea friendly

Mikel Arteta says that Thomas Partey’s ankle injury doesn’t look good, and then revealed that the midfielder is set for a scan tomorrow.

It’s a concern for the Arsenal boss, who saw the Ghanaian go down under a challenge from Ruben Loftus-Cheek. After some initial treatment, he carried on but had to be taken off a few minutes later.

“I just had a talk with the doc,” said Arteta. He’ll have a scan tomorrow. At the moment it’s not looking good.”

Arteta on Partey.

Partey had been particularly impressive during the first half too, a promising sign ahead of the new season, but it now looks as if he might be sidelined for the opening weeks.
