Arteta stated that the Ghanaian Partey had some discomfort which got worse and worse. "He was very uncomfortable to continue. And on Saturday or the day after he will have an MRI scan and see what he has.
Quoting the injury of another a defensive midfielder Mohamed Elneny, he said "We have at the moment the injury of Elneny and it is not possible to get him fit. Albert Sambi has come in as a substitute and has done well.”
