Watch: Thomas Partey steps up recovery with Arsenal training return

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey is edging closer to a playing return.

The Ghana international returned from a month on the sidelines to feature in the north London derby with Tottenham on December 6, but broke down again with a recurrence of a thigh problem.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta will make a call on this week's sessions - and as you can see Partey is looking in good shape.
