Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey will need a scan on an ankle injury he sustained during Sunday's 2-1 pre-season defeat by Chelsea.

 

Partey, 28, limped off during the first half following a tackle by Blues midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

 
He received treatment shortly after the incident and tried to carry on, however he later went down again and had to be taken off.
 
 
Partey was replaced by Granit Xhaka, who has just returned to training after being on holiday post Euro 2020.
 
"At the moment it's not looking good because he was in pain and he could not continue which, for Thomas, is pretty unusual," said manager Mikel Arteta.
 
Arsenal will hope any possible injury to Partey is not serious as they kick off their Premier League campaign against Brentford on August 13.
 
Partey is likely to play a key role for the Gunners this season after signing last year for over £40million.
