Arsenal boss Arteta: Partey pressuring me about Spurs selection

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey is putting a lot of pressure on manager Mikel Arteta to play against Tottenham in the north London derby on Sunday.

The Ghana midfielder has been sidelined with a thigh injury since the November 8 loss to Aston Villa.

Speaking after Thursday's win over Rapid Vienna, Arteta said there was a chance the summer signing could feature against Spurs.

"He's putting a lot of pressure on us," Arteta said when asked about Partey's condition at a press conference after the victory against the Austrian side.

"He's training tomorrow with us and let's see how it goes in the next couple of days."
