Thomas Partey injury fears intensify as Arsenal star withdraws from international duty

The right-back is expected to be withdrawn from Gareth Southgate’s England squad today, and the injury left Jurgen Klopp raging at the Premier League’s fixture calendar. 

City boss Pep Guardiola also called for more protection for players, and labelled the situation a “disaster”.

He said: “Trent Alexander-Arnold, international English player, now injured.

“Here we believe we are more special, we don’t protect the players, so that is why it is a disaster.

“This calendar came from a year before and I will demand for players to come back otherwise it will be difficult to maintain it.”
