Arsenal star Thomas Partey is expected to miss up to two weeks, according to Football.London. The Ghanaian international limped off during the Gunners’ 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday.
Mikel Arteta’s side had initially been optimistic about the midfielder’s fitness. However, he is now likely to miss both of the Gunners’ Europa League ties against Benfica as well as the weekend’s match with a hamstring injury.
In his absence, the Gunners could give a full debut to Martin Odegaard against Leeds on Sunday. Mikel Arteta also has Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny as midfield options to come in, while Dani Ceballos has made his return from injury.
