Arsenal will be looking to get back to winning ways when they face Brentford on Saturday, as they look to extend their five-point lead at the top of the Premier League table. The Gunners were beaten 1-0 by Everton last week, their first league defeat since September, but they have been handed a major boost ahead of the game with Thomas Partey set to be involved.
The Ghanaian international had been absent from training images last week, raising concerns about his involvement for the weekend. However, he has now been declared fit as seen in current training pictures and available for selection as per Football.London, giving manager Mikel Arteta a huge boost.
Partey has been an integral part of Arsenal’s success this season and his return is sure to give the team a lift as they look to get back on track against Brentford. The Bees are currently in the seventh position in the Premier League and they will still pose a threat to Arsenal’s title ambitions.
The Gunners will be hoping that Partey can help them secure all three points and extend their lead at the top of the table. Victory would see them move eight points clear of second-placed Manchester City, who were beaten by Tottenham a few days ago. It would also be a timely boost ahead of their crucial mid week clash with Manchester City next week.
