Thomas Partey, Arsenal Midfielder, Optimistic for October Comeback as Mohamed Elneny’s Return Looms
Arsenal’s midfielder, Thomas Partey, is keeping his fingers crossed for a return to the pitch next month.
Last month, the Ghanaian international suffered a groin injury just before the international break, sidelining him for Arsenal’s thrilling 3-1 Premier League victory over Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium.
Consequently, Partey was absent from Ghana’s squad for their recent matches against Central African Republic and Liberia. Instead, he began his recovery journey with Arsenal. The 30-year-old is optimistic about a potential comeback in October, but the club will be cautious, prioritizing his well-being over a rushed return.
Meanwhile, Arsenal is also looking forward to the return of another midfielder, Mohamed Elneny, in the near future. Elneny, the Egyptian player, suffered a knee injury in January that necessitated surgery, prematurely concluding his 2022/23 season.
Having been sidelined for nine months, Arsenal is taking a methodical approach to Elneny’s rehabilitation, refraining from setting a definite return date. However, the club is gearing up for Carabao Cup action later this month when they face London rivals Brentford in the third round on the 27th.
This fixture could provide the ideal opportunity for the experienced midfielder to make his long-awaited comeback.
