Arsenal have been handed Thomas Partey injury boost ahead of clash against Leeds United at Emirate stadium on Sunday.
Partey’s injury is not serious and the Arsenal midfielder could be back for Sunday’s Premier League game against Leeds, according to reports.
The 27-year-old summer signing from Atlético de Madrid has had an interrupted season due to injury problems in recent months.
Partey had recently returned to the team after sustaining a hip injury that kept him out for 10 games.
And the Ghana international was unable to continue against Villa, as Willian replaced him with 15 minutes left in the match.
“I don’t know he had a muscle problem, so we had to remove it, “Arteta said.
“He couldn’t keep playing. We’ll see the extent of the injury. He wasn’t feeling well enough to keep playing, so we had to take him out.”
However, the injury is not considered serious and the midfielder will spend the next few days recovering before Sunday’s game at Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal are currently without Kieran Tierney, who has missed the last two league games with an upper leg injury.
