Arsenal have suffered a major injury blow ahead of their Premier League derby with Tottenham Hotspur on October 1.
Arsenal midfielder, Thomas Partey missed Ghana’s international friendly tie against Brazil on Friday after pulling up with an injury during the warm-up.
Partey was set to start for the Black Stars in France on Friday evening but was forced to withdraw after picking up a knock just a few minutes before kick-off.
Ghana has not disclosed the nature of Partey’s injury, but it will come as a huge concern for Arsenal, who take on Tottenham at the Emirates immediately after the international break next month.
It would also serve as another huge injury blow for the 29-year-old, who has already missed three games this season due to a knee injury.
Partey returned to Mikel Arteta’s starting XI on Sunday as Arsenal eased to a 3-0 win over Brentford, but he could now be set for another spell on the sidelines.
