Arsenal are preparing to face Manchester City on Saturday, October 17.

Ahead of the game, Mikel Arteta gave a press conference and spoke out on Thomas Partey, City and more.

On Partey playing

“Today he will have his first training session. He will need to go quickly… He wants to play. We will see. You see players adapting really quickly and others taking a long time.

“I’ve seen the buzz around the place. The fans are really happy, I’ve seen some really positive reactions. The same with the team and staff. We have rated him for a long time.”

On Manchester City

“They still produce incredible numbers in everything they do. In my opinion they’ve been really unlucky with some of the results they’ve got. They should have put games to bed very early. The level of efficiency of the opponents when they had chances or half chances have punished them a lot.

“I haven’t seen many decreases in the level of their playing or what they are producing game by game. I haven’t seen any of that.”

On Kieran Tierney

“This is getting very complicated when we send players abroad and lose control. Some authorities have different regulations to the ones in the Premier League. We are still having some discussions and hopefully we will have more news this afternoon.”
