Thomas Partey likely to start for Arsenal against Man City on Saturday – Arteta

Thomas Partey could start against ManCity on Saturday.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed that Thomas Partey is fit and could make his debut against Manchester City this weekend.

The Gunners will come up against Man City in the Premier League on Saturday, October 17, 2020, at the Etihad stadium.

Partey joined Arteta’s side from Atletico Madrid on transfer deadline day in a deal worth £45 million.

The 27-year-old will wear the number 18 shirt at Arsenal, and will reportedly earn £250,000 per week.

Despite arriving at the club just two days ago, the Arsenal manager insists he is fit and could start against Man City.

“Well he was here just yesterday, he is getting familiar with everything around the club,” the Spaniard told the club’s official website.

“Today he will have his first training session, so everything has to come really quickly for him. We knew that before we signed him that he is fit, he is very willing to start playing, and we will see how he goes in the next few days.”

Arteta further revealed that Partey has already started acquainting himself with his teammates and other staff of the club.
