Arsenal have been handed a boost ahead of Saturday’s trip to Anfield as it appears Thomas Partey will be available for the game against Liverpool.
Although it wasn’t announced specifically, the club’s latest medical update mentions only Sead Kolasinac and Granit Xhaka, and says, “All other players in the men’s first-team squad are currently fit and available for selection.”
The Ghanaian international missed our 1-0 win over Watford with a groin strain, and subsequently didn’t travel to play for his country during the international break. Based on this update though, we’re going to assume he’s in contention for the game against the Mugsmashers.
Meanwhile, Sead Kolasinac has suffered a ‘significant’ injury to his left ankle, picked up while playing for Bosnia and Herzegovina in a 3-1 defeat to Finland.
He will be assessed and as yet there is no time frame for his recovery. However, with Kieran Tierney back to fitness and Nuno Tavares impressing in his absence, Arsenal are well covered at left back.
Granit Xhaka continues his rehab from a knee injury, and is expected back in early 2022.
