PARTEY RETURNS FROM INJURY FOR ARSENAL

PARTEY RETURNS FROM INJURY FOR ARSENAL

Arsenal had a disappointing outing against London rivals Crystal Palace last night in the Premier League as their recent good run came to an end but the return of Ghanaian international Thomas Partey to the Arsenal team was one of the few positives for the Gunners on the night. Thomas Partey has had some troubles with staying fit for the Gunners and fans would be hoping that his recent fitness issues are behind him after his second half introduction to the Palace game. He came on in place of Dani Ceballos for the final 21 minutes of the game as Arsenal and Crystal Palace failed to score a goal in their London Derby clash.

Arsenal made the headlines on the final day of last summer’s transfer window when they paid €50m (£45m) to sign Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid in the Spanish league. The Spanish La Liga leaders were not willing to let Thomas Partey leave the club but they had no choice after Arsenal activated his release clause.

Patrick Bamford heaps praise on former club Chelsea

Patrick Bamford heaps praise on former club Chelsea

Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford has heaped praise on former club Chelsea for the progress made under manager Frank Lampard. Bamford recently found the back of the net against the Blues in the Premier League, but the west London side made a terrific comeback to three goals in what ended up as a comfortable win.


The Blues are currently one of the most in-form teams in the Premier League and Bamford has acknowledged that the Whites were outplayed by the capital outfit, he told The Athletic’s Ornstein and Chapman Podcast: “We nit-pick everything really. Our physical stats weren’t bad but Chelsea really outperformed what they’ve done the rest of the season, in terms of physically. Then obviously we know about Chelsea how good they are. ‘I think that’s probably the best team we’ve played this year.”

MIDFIELDER PICKS ANTONIO OVER HALLER

 

West Ham United midfielder Pablo Fornals has hinted that he prefers to play with pal Michail Antonio in attack rather than Sebastien Haller. French-born Ivorian international Haller has not lived up to his £45m price tag since his move to the Premier League last summer. He signed for the Hammers from Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt at the beginning of the last Premier League campaign.


His average form in the West Ham United colours led to Michail Antonio usurping him as the lone striker for the East Londoners thereby condemning him to substitute appearances in the Premier League in recent months.Michail Antonio has been the main man in the West Ham United in recent months until the home game against Manchester City in October. He suffered a hamstring injury during the game and has not played since then. His absence gave Sebastien Haller the chance to stake a claim for a permanent spot in the Hammersattack, but the player failed to seize the opportunity.

Watford forward Danny Welbeck could make an instant return to the Premier League amid the interest from a number of top-flight teams. The England international joined the Hornets on a free transfer from Arsenal last summer, but he endured another frustrating campaign where he struggled with a number of injuries.


He contributed only two goals and one assist from 18 league appearances, but those contributions came during the final five games of the season, where he started to find his feet. With the Hornets’ relegation to the Championship, he has the option of leaving the club for just £5.5m with the relegation release clause on his contract and reports claim that the Saints are favourites to land his signature.
