Mikel Arteta confirms double Arsenal injury blow after Chelsea friendly
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed a double injury blow following the pre-season friendly against Chelsea.
The Gunners suffered a 2-1 defeat against the Blues, but the game should have ended in a draw after they were denied a clear goal.
Partey was substituted before the half-time whistle with an ankle injury, and Arteta has now provided some worrying news.
The Gunners boss confirmed that the midfielder was in 'pain' and added that the injury does not 'look good' at the moment.
Meanwhile, the Spaniard also confirmed that Gabriel remains on the sidelines after an ankle injury of his own last month.
He sustained the damage while preparing for the Olympics with Brazil. Arteta is unsure when he could return to action.
The Gunners have made three signings this summer. Ben White made his debut with a resounding performance earlier today.
He made a couple of key goal-saving challenges, and has definitely caught the eye of many Gunners fans on social media.
