Arsenal welcome back Thomas Partey for crunch Benfica clash

Arsenal have received a huge boost ahead of their crunch Europa League clash with Benfica on Thursday.

The Gunners welcomed Thomas Partey back to full training on Tuesday.

The Ghanian star has missed the last three games due to a thigh injury.

Partey was viewed training before Sunday's meeting with Manchester City, but was ultimately left out of the eventual 1-0 defeat.

But it seems Mikel Arteta will have the dynamic midfielder available for Thursday's clash with Benfica.

The last-32 tie is evenly poised at 1-1 heading to London.
