Arteta reveals double injury blow for Arsenal ahead Sheffield United clash


Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has revealed he would be without Gabriel Jesus and Thomas Partey for the visit of Sheffield United on Saturday.

Jesus hobbled off with a hamstring problem during their 2-1 win over Sevilla in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Partey did not travel for the game in Spain as he was injured in training.

On Jesus, Arteta said: “Again, the scan shows there is a muscle injury and we might lose him for a few weeks. With Gabi, I cannot give you any timeframe because he always surprises us.

“But there’s something there he felt in an awkward action (against Sevilla). It’s true he had quite a lot of load in the last few weeks, which he hasn’t in a long time. It’s really bad news for us.”

On Partey, he added: “He’s got a muscle injury and we expect him to be out for a few weeks. We don’t know the extent of it. He has more tests today.

“He picked it up with the last kick in training before Seville. It’s very unfortunate.”
