Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has provided an injury update on Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney after they both had to be substituted in Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Burnley.

The Ghana international was forced off in the second half and replaced by Ainsley Maitland-Niles as he made his first full Premier League start since returning from injury.

Tierney also came off in the latter stages of the 1-0 win.

On Partey’s injury Arteta said:

“He’s the anchor. 

 

“He’s the one who has to read what is happening and make the rest better, that’s his biggest job to get the right balance in the team, the right fluidity in the attack. How he manages the transition is top, he has a charisma.

 

“He struggled at the end. He was cramping but that will come because he’s missed a long time. He needs some fitness back.”

While on Tierney the Spaniard added:

“Again he had a problem. I think he was cramping. The pitch was pretty difficult today it was quite long.”
