Arsenal supporters are confident of closing the gap at the top of the Premier League after Thomas Partey returned to training.

The midfielder has not started a match for the Gunners since last August due to injury, but is now ready to return to the field.

Arsenal are currently third in the Premier League, five points behind leaders Liverpool and level with second-placed Manchester City.

City have a game in hand and were looking ominous in their last top-flight match against Newcastle following Kevin De Bruyne’s return to fitness.

Arsenal news: Fans delighted as Thomas Partey returns to training


Arsenal’s form over the Christmas period saw them briefly drop out of the top spot and out of the Champions League qualification places.

Last weekend’s 5-0 demolition of Crystal Palace got their campaign back on track and now Mikel Arteta has received another welcome boost.

Partey played a key role in helping the Gunners win their first title since 2004 last season.

They ultimately failed in that pursuit, but many supporters were keen to see them sign Declan Rice for £105 million.

He has yet to start a league match in midfield with Rice, with three of his league starts in August coming at right-back.

The former Atletico Madrid star was ruled out for a month with a groin injury before making a brief return as a substitute in the win over Manchester City in October.

But after this he suffered a serious injury to his hamstring due to which he had to stay out for three months.

Partey were forced to bow out of the Africa Cup of Nations, while Ghana were eliminated this week after failing to win any of their group matches.

But the 30-year-old is now back in full training ahead of Arsenal’s match at Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

Gunners fans rejoiced on social media, with many reacting similarly.

One wrote on X: “Arsenal look set to win the league easily with Partey back.”

Another said: “We’re winning the league.” While another posted: “Our title charge starts now.”
