Arsenal may not be ready to challenge the best sides in the Premier League this season, but it feels like the coming weeks will determine what their ambitions are for the rest of the campaign.

The home win against Newcastle United was sandwiched by disappointing losses on the road to Liverpool and Manchester United, the most recent of which came on Thursday at Old Trafford.

Although those defeats left some fans frustrated, the team remain well in contention for a European place and they will be confident of getting back on track against an out-of-sorts Everton on Monday at Goodison Park.

Here are your latest Gunners headlines ahead of a crucial game in Liverpool.

Partey encouraged to end ‘dismal’ slump

A number of Arsenal players were short of their best on Thursday at Old Trafford, including Thomas Partey.

The midfielder has failed to find consistency since his move to the Emirates Stadium from Atletico Madrid last season, mixing some commanding displays with lacklustre efforts.

Josh O’Brien has picked through Partey’s performance in the game in Manchester, noting the lack of concentration at key points from the 28-year-old.
