Arsenal suffer major injury blow as new £45million signing Thomas Partey taken off at half-time

ARSENAL suffered a major injury blow as Thomas Partey was subbed off at half-time against Aston Villa.

The £45million signing had earned rave reviews for his performance in the 1-0 win against Manchester United last week.
