Arsenal midfielder, Thomas Partey, is a doubt for the derby against Tottenham next weekend after Ghana confirmed his early exit from their national team camp.
A knee problem kept him out of a defeat to Brazil ahead of the weekend and he will also miss Tuesday’s clash with Nicaragua.

A statement read: “Thomas Partey has been granted permission to travel back to London for further assessment after picking up a suspected knee injury on Friday minutes before the international friendly against Brazil.
“The 29-year-old was set to start for the Black Stars but just a few minutes before kick-off, was forced to withdraw after picking up a knock.
“The 29-year old was withdrawn as a precautionary measure and replaced by RCD Mallorca midfielder Baba Idrissu.”
