Following Ghana’s exit at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations, Arsenal fans are excited as Thomas Partey is billed to return to join his teammates at the Emirates.

The Gunners are now boosted following the availability of Partey who scored in Ghana’s shocking 3-2 loss to Comoros as they are dumped out of the 2021 AFCON tournament in Cameroon.

Debutant Comoros showed class and quality to defeat the Black Stars who played most of the game with 10-men after Andre Ayew was shown a straight red.

And as they exit the competition, Partey is expected to return to the Emirates Stadium to join his club teammates; meaning he would not have missed a Premier League clash after their game vs Tottenham was postponed.

Just before his departure for the tournament in Cameroon, Partey was very impressive for the Gunners and was a standout player in their game against league leaders Manchester City earlier this month. As a result, many Gooners are delighted by his imminent return.

One wrote on Twitter:

“It’s quite something, how you can fly to another continent for a tournament, come back, and not miss one league game! Up Ghana!”

Another added:

“Thomas Partey being knocked out of the AFCON and going back to The Arsenal is lovely news, let’s play some games now.”

A third said:

“Arsenal better have a private jet to London ready for Thomas Partey asap!”

The four-time African champions were eliminated from the tournament after a 3-2 defeat to debutants Comoros Island on Tuesday night in Garoua. The result left fans of the Bafana Bafana happy, with many taking to social media to express their happiness.
