Thomas Partey could return for Arsenal vs Leeds

Arsenal vs Leeds

Arsenal will return to action on Sunday afternoon, taking on Leeds United in a Premier League clash.

The Gunners will head into the tie no doubt desperate to end their mini dip in form.

Mikel Arteta’s men had of course been on a solid run until recently. But, after a questionable dismissal in their meeting with Wolves, went on to lose both at Molineux, and in their subsequent outing vs Aston Villa on Saturday.

Such defeats have seen Arsenal slip down to 10th in the Premier League table.

The north Londoners are also now nine points adrift of a Champions League spot, with the majority of the sides above them boasting at least one game in hand.

As a result, if the Gunners have any hope of even securing a Europa League spot this term, they really need to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.

Beating Leeds, however, is easier said than done. Marcelo Bielsa’s side have been let down by some questionable defending this season, but they can give any side in the English top-flight a run for their money when it comes to attacking prowess.

Thomas Partey injury update

Ahead of what is no doubt set to be a tough clash, though, Arsenal appear to have been handed a boost on the personnel front.

Thomas Partey limped out of the capital giants’ defeat to Villa over the weekend.

Speaking post-match, Mikel Arteta confirmed that the African had picked up a muscle problem, with Arsenal’s fans left fearing the worst:

However, as per a report from the reliable Chris Wheatley on Monday, Partey’s injury is not a serious one, and he could be back in time to take on Leeds this weekend:
