  • Arsenal could be without ace midfielder Thomas Partey for tomorrow's clash against Everton
  • The Premier League leaders will travel to face the relegation battlers in an important encounter
  • New signing from Chelsea Jorginho could make his debut tomorrow if Partey does not make it

Arsenal's decision to sign Jorginho from Chelsea on deadline day could prove smart after defensive midfielder Thomas Partey is ruled as a major doubt for tomorrow's Premier League game.

League leaders Arsenal will travel to Goodison Park to keep a date with relegation strugglers Everton who are hoping for a bright start to life under new manager Sean Dyche who replaced Frank Lampard.

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta in his team news confirmed the Ghanaian midfielder is a doubt for the game unless he trains well with the team today, as reported by Sportskeeda.

What Arteta said on Partey

Fresh off a midweek FA Cup defeat to Manchester City, Arteta will hope to continue the teams winning run in the league where they beat Manchester United 3-2 in the last game, and speaking ahead of the game as quoted by Metro UK, he updated the fitness of key players.

''Let’s see, that one is still a doubt. Let’s see how he comes in today and if he’s able to train or not. We will make a decision on that. He’s not ruled out and it’s nothing very significant but it was significant enough to get him out of the game which for Thomas is a bit unusual. But hopefully, he’ll be fine,'' he said.

As reported by Sports Brief, the former Atletico Madrid midfielder was brought off at half-time in the 1-0 loss to City and replaced by Albert Sambi Lokonga. If not fit, Jorginho could make his Arsenal debut tomorrow.

Tomiyasu reveals Arsenal's secret

Arsenal struggled for consistency last season, due to unavailability and loss of form of key players and it cost them UEFA Champions League qualification at the end of the season.

Thomas Partey was one of the injured and struggling players last season but has stepped up massively this season and as earlier reported by Sports Brief, defender Takehiro Tomiyasu claimed they understand the manager better.

Arsenal are on course for glory in the Premier League and UEFA Europa League if they maintain their consistency until the end of the season.
