The latest on Aubameyang and Partey’s fitness

What’s the latest on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Thomas Partey’s fitness?

Ahead of Saturday’s showdown with Liverpool at Anfield, Mikel Arteta briefed the media about the pair after the former returned to the club early from international duty with Gabon and Partey missed both of Ghana’s matches.

“No it wasn't pre-planned [for Auba to fly home early], we have to assess him and see how he is and make a decision,” the manager said.

“We have a lot players who have been through some different games, issues, little injuries, so today we have to test everybody and see how we are to play tomorrow.

“Same again [for Partey], he could not play for the national team, he really tried to do that because they had a massive game and he really pushed for that one, but he wasn't close enough to do that.

“Again, it's something we have to assess today.”
