Arteta delivers Tierney, Partey injury update before Benfica v Arsenal

Both players missed Sunday’s 4-2 win over Leeds through injury as Partey recovers from a hamstring issue and Tierney nurses lower leg discomfort.

Arsenal face crunch clashes next week, with Benfica in the Europa League on Thursday and Premier League leaders Manchester City on Sunday.

But asked if Partey and Tierney could feature in those matches, Arteta said: “It seems unlikely at the moment, but I don’t know.

“Probably if there is one player who has got a bigger chance, it’s Kieran, because probably in the next few days he can start to do some parts with the team.

“But I don’t know how he is going to evolve when he gets a little better closer to training with the group.”
