Mikel Arteta has confirmed Thomas Partey will train with his Arsenal team-mates tomorrow as he bids to prove his fitness ahead of this weekend’s north London derby against Tottenham.

Summer signing Partey has not featured for the Gunners since suffering an injury in the 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa on November 8.

The Ghana midfielder was once again absent as Arsenal smashed Rapid Vienna 4-1 in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Asked to provide an update on Partey’s fitness following the victory, Arteta said: ‘He’s putting a lot of pressure on us.

‘He’s training tomorrow with us and let’s see how it goes in the next couple of days.’
