ARSENAL ace Thomas Partey is working hard at the gym to step up his recovery from injury.
Partey’s injury hell continued as he was forced off the field with 16 minutes left to play against Crystal Palace two weeks ago at Selhurst Park.
The Gunners’ manager Mikel Arteta claimed the midfielder picked up a “significant injury”, which is understood to be a thigh injury that could keep him sidelined for a number of weeks.
However, the Ghana international is determined to return to action as soon as possible and has hit the gym to step up his rehabilitation.
The 28-year-old shared a video on his personal Instagram account showing him breaking a sweat on the spin bike.
But of course the Ghanaian is not expected to take part in tonight’s crunch Premier League clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Partey joined Kieran Tierney in the sidelines as the Scotland international underwent surgery after suffering a knee injury.
This is a major blow to Arteta’s already wafer-thin Arsenal squad, whose top-four bid is in grave peril.
The North Londoners appeared as the likeliest candidates to book fourth place but dropped to fifth after losing four of their last five league matches.

The Spaniard remained coy on Partey’s injury when quizzed by reporters for details but confirmed he will be out for “some weeks”.
Arteta said: “It is a little bit ambiguous but he has a significant injury.
“We have to keep assessing him but he’ll be out for some weeks.”
