Arsenal’s Partey and Aubameyang matchup in Afcon 2021 Group C

Arsenal teammates Thomas Partey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will face up at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations next year in Cameroon.

Ghana and Gabon have been placed in group C of the group stages of the competition alongside Morocco and Comoros.

That means Arsenal’s top stars will clash for a spot in the knockout stages of the tourney as they bid to win the title claimed by Algeria in 2019.

Partey and Aubameyang did not feature  in Arsenal’s Premier League opener against Brentford on August 13.

Their next game is a home fixture against London rivals Chelsea and Aubameyang is expected to be fit for the encounter.

Partey is still nursing a knee injury suffered during pre-season and will gain full fitness Mid-September.

Ghana ranks 7th in Africa while Gabon are placed 17th on the rankings.
