The midfielder had suffered elimination with Ghana in the group stages of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) barely 48 hours earlier.
He started Thursday morning in Cameroon, landed in London by 12:00pm and was named on the bench for Arsenal’s crucial Carabao Cup semi-final second leg game against the Reds.
The Gunners had held Jurgen Klopp’s side to a goalless draw at Anfield but couldn’t repeat their heroics as a double from Diogo Jota condemned them to a 2-0 defeat.
Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta defended his decision to involve Partey in the game despite the midfielder’s inactivity in the last 48 hours.
