No Partey, no problem: Sambi Lokonga earns rave reviews from Arsenal fans during Tottenham clash

Tottenham vs Arsenal

Arsenal are currently locked in pre-season action with north London rivals, Tottenham.

The game is of course both side’s final pre-season clash before they get their Premier League campaigns underway next week.

The Gunners will kick off their season on Friday evening with a meeting against newly-promoted Brentford.

Arsenal fans heap praise on Lokonga

One player who will not be featuring for the Gunners against Brentford is Thomas Partey.

The midfielder picked up an injury vs Chelsea last weekend and Arsenal have since confirmed that the African will not be back in training for another three weeks:

Since his move from Atletico Madrid, it has been quite clear that Partey is Arsenal’s best central midfielder.

So, losing him for any period of time is of course a big blow to Mikel Arteta and co.

However, the concerns over Partey’s absence do look to have been eased somewhat on Sunday.

The reason for this is that Albert Sambi Lokonga has, so far, been one of Arsenal’s standout stars against Tottenham.

The 21-year-old has looked calm in possession and has put in a performance well above his years.

This has led to Arsenal fans heaping praise on the young Belgian on social media, with just some of the comments shown below:
