Speaking after the match, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta admitted the injury “didn’t look good” and a scan on Monday has revealed Partey is now set for a spell on the sidelines.

The early results from Monday’s scan are mixed, with Partey now expected to be out for a few weeks, according to sources close to the player.

But whilst there is frustration that the midfielder will now miss at least the opening game of the new season at Brentford on August 13, there is also some relief that the initial signs suggest he will not be out for the long-term.

The early indications are that he will miss ‘a few weeks’ after injuring his ankle ligaments, but that there will be no need for surgery.

Partey will see another ankle specialist later this week when the exact extent of the injury and his absence should become clearer.
