Arsenal boss Arteta confirms MRI scan for Thomas Partey

Arsenal star Thomas Partey will undergo scans for suffering an injury in the 2-0 loss to Tottenham on Sunday.

The Ghana midfielder was making his return from a thigh injury which had kept him out since November 5.

But Partey lasted only until half-time before being substituted.

"I applaud their first goal, it is world class, but the second goal we are a man down, we leave a massive gap and they take advantage," Arteta told the BBC.

"He [Thomas Partey] has to stay on the pitch. It looks like the same injury he has already had, he will have an MRI."
