Attention is focused on the degree of injury to key midfielders.
British media ‘Sky Sports’ reported on the 28th (Korean time), “Arsenal midfielder Thomas Party (29) is scheduled to undergo an MRI scan.”
Aspen is in first place with 50 points, 16 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in 19 English Premier League (PL) matches in the 2022-23 season. The key midfielder Partey was very active in Arsenal’s midfield, scoring two goals in 16 matches. Partey missed Arsenal’s only defeat.
An emergency occurred during the race for the lead. According to the UK’s ‘Sky Sports’, the extent of the party’s injuries could be serious. Partey collapsed with an injury during the English Football Association (FA) Cup match against Manchester City on the 28th. After digesting only 45 minutes in the first half, he was replaced by Albert Sambi Loconga (23). After replacing the party, Arsenal lost 0-1 with Nathan Ake (27) scoring the winning goal in the second half.
He seems to have been running with pain all the time. After the match against Man City, Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta said, “Party was feeling a bit uncomfortable.”
Even the director deserves a headache. Coach Arteta said, “Party is a player with a lot of influence on the pitch.” “Mohamed Elneni (30) is also injured. Although Rokonca showed a good performance in the second half of Man City, it was a pity that Partey was absent.”
The leading competition is putting all its efforts into it. With the winter transfer window deadline just around the corner, Arsenal are looking to sign Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo (21). However, Brighton did not take it lightly. According to ‘Sky Sports’, he has already turned down an offer from Arsenal for a transfer fee of £60m.
In the meantime, Caicedo desperately wants to transfer to Arsenal. He expressed his intention to transfer through his personal social network service (SNS). In response, coach Arteta said, “I will not comment on any player until something is done.”
