He has been training with his teammates since Monday and has improved his match fitness which the medical handlers of the team has deemed him fit to play this weekend.

 

Manager Mikel Arteta bemoaned at a press conference today [thursday] that he is yet to decide on the midfield partnership he will field for the upcoming game.

 

“Depending on who we have available and the formation we are going to use, if we are going to play with two holding midfielders or just one, we will have some options there as well, with the arrival of Martin, Thomas [Partey] and with Emile who can play in those positions. It will actually depend.”
