Thomas Partey looks set to earn a recall to the Arsenal starting lineup for tonight’s Premier League clash against Aston Villa. It’s the third game in the space of a week for the Gunners following a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United last weekend.

Partey, who played 90 minutes in the 1-0 win over the Red Devils, was an unused substitute as Arsenal beat Molde. But the £45m summer signing from Atletico Madrid has trained with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, and Gabriel Magalhaes ahead of the visit of Villa so is available for selection.

Taking to Instagram, the 27-year-old has done his best to hype up the big game in north London which would suggest he’s in line for a recall.
