Ghana boss Chris Hughton provides new stunning injury update on Thomas Partey after Arsenal star is

Thomas Partey, who was replaced midway through Sunday’s game against Mexico, is not hurt, according to Ghana head coach Chris Hughton.

Partey sustained a groin injury against Fulham in Arsenal’s third game of the year, and he will be sidelined for the next six.

The former Atletico Madrid star came off the bench for the first time since August during the final 15 minutes of the 1-0 victory over Manchester City prior to the international break. He was not used as a substitute in the Champions League defeat to Lens.

For friendlies against Mexico and the United States, beginning with a 2-0 loss to El Tri in the wee hours of Sunday, Partey was added to Ghana’s roster.

At halftime, the 30-year-old was substituted, but Black Stars head coach Hughton quickly allayed any fresh injury worries by claiming that the choice to limit his playing time to 45 minutes was made prior to begin.

In a press conference, Hughton stated, “Thomas was always going to play 45 minutes.”

He had been sidelined for three to four weeks due to an injury; he made a midweek comeback for Arsenal, sitting on the substitutes’ bench for one game before playing 20 minutes in the next. He would only be on the field for 45 minutes, so we understood that.

Arsenal decided to accompany the midfielder to Ghana with physiotherapist Simon Murphy in order to track his progress given his recent physical problems.

On Saturday, October 21, Arsenal will play Chelsea after the break for international play.

Bukayo Saka and William Saliba, who were released from the England and France teams, respectively, stayed in north London during the international break.

Saka suffered an injury in the loss to Lens and was unable to play in the victory over Manchester City, but Arsenal is optimistic that he will be ready for the trip to Stamford Bridge.

Saliba, who had been dealing with a toe injury for some weeks, decided to leave the Les Blues team in the meanwhile. He will likely compete against Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.

Leandro Trossard left the Belgium squad as well after being hurt against City.
