Huge injury update which could have big implications on Arsenal's Premier League title chances ahead of Leeds clash | The Sun

ARSENAL return to Premier League action on Saturday after the international break.

And the latest injury news coming out of the club will come as a huge boost to Gunners supporters.

Earlier this week it was reported that Arsenal were sweating on the fitness of key man Thomas Partey.

He played in Ghana's 1-0 win over Angola last Thursday but sat out of Monday's game against the same nation with a fitness issue.

Ghana boss Chris Hughton said: "Thomas has a small injury issue and we felt it was too big of a risk to start him."

However, the 29-year-old DID train for Arsenal on Thursday ahead of Saturday's clash.

Arsenal's full squad returned to London Colney on Thursday following the international break.

Elsewhere, it remains to be seen if William Saliba will be fit enough to play.

Saliba limped off in the Europa League defeat to Sporting Lisbon earlier this month and missed the win over Crystal Palace.

And the 21-year-old was absent for Thursday's training session at London Colney.

It's unclear whether he will play against Leeds on Saturday, according to the Evening Standard.

The Gunners are currently eight points clear of title rivals Manchester City at the top of the Prem, having played a game more than the Etihad outfit.

Pep Guardiola and Co are in action first this weekend as they host old rivals Liverpool in a mouthwatering clash.
