An update on the wellbeing of Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has been forthcoming online on Monday, after the Ghanaian was forced off during the club’s embarrassing defeat to Aston Villa.

Gunners humbled

Mikel Arteta’s men welcomed the Villans to north London on Sunday night, for the final fixture of the Premier League weekend.

Arsenal of course headed into proceedings as overwhelming favourites to bag all 3 points, on the back of an improved spell of form.

The capital giants had notched three straight wins across all competitions, including what appeared a statement downing of Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend.

Aston Villa, on the other hand, had seen their blistering opening to the campaign go up in smoke, with a pair of consecutive defeats.

As such, what subsequently unfolded over the 90 minutes at the Emirates proved not only a surprise, but an outright shock.

Dean Smith’s underdogs played their hosts off the park, to eventually emerge with a thoroughly deserved 3-0 win.

A first-half Buakyo Saka own goal was followed by a quickfire double from Ollie Watkins inside the closing 20 minutes, to see Villa depart north London with all 3 points, and Arsenal cast into turmoil ahead of the international break.
