Photo: Lacazette injured by Arsenal teammate in training

Thomas Partey may be a fan favourite with the Arsenal fans right now, but it would appear that he may not the most popular teammate judging by what Alexandre Lacazette posted on Instagram on Wednesday.

Partey was named the Arsenal player of the month for February. He helped the Gunners to victories over Brentford, as well as both games against Wolves.

The results leave Arsenal in pole position in the race for the top four in the Premier League. But what may not help is the Gunners’ first-choice striker sustaining an injury.

Lacazette has been absolutely outstanding in the last few months. His importance to the side increased significantly with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang losing the captaincy and then leaving the club

He has taken on being a leader in the squad brilliantly. In fact, his performances have been so good that Arsenal are considering improving the contract offer on the table for the Frenchman. He will be a free agent as things stand.

Lacazette may be impressing for Arsenal right now. But that does not appear to be doing him any favours on the training ground.

Lacazette posted a couple of images on his Instagram story showing his leg sporting a few cuts. And he made no attempt to hide the culprit, tagging Partey in the post

Obviously, it would appear that Partey has put in a nasty challenge at some stage. However, it is hard to imagine Lacazette posting the image on social media if there was any concern over how serious any injury was.

It would not be the best look if the striker was sidelined for a period having let the world know who it was who injured him.

In an ideal world, Partey would save the harder challenges for Arsenal’s opponents. But Arteta probably will not want the midfielder to do anything differently given the form he is currently in.
