Thomas Partey looks to be getting settled at Arsenal after a rousing performance for the Gunners after returning from an injury.
His return leaves Arsenal without a loss in any competition following an unlucky start to the season without the Ghanaian player.
On Friday evening, October 22, Thomas Partey, easily produced another excellent game at the expense of Aston Villa and crowned it with a goal. Arsenal got back on track with a 3-1 win.
His dominance of the midfield that attracted the attention of supporters of Arsenal, who are starting to see what the bargain to start an exclusion clause for him from Atletico is worth the price.
A diagram from Skysports described Ghana’s significant contribution to the sport, and the way it affected Arsenal’s game.
“At the time of his goal, he had not misplaced a single pass. By the end, he had made more passes, had more touches and made more successful tackles than anyone else on the pitch,” wrote Nick Wright for Skysports.com.
“He looked like he was enjoying himself and no wonder.
Partey had to endure more than his share of frustration last season, injuries limiting him to only 18 Premier League starts, and there was more misfortune at the start of this one, a twisted ankle suffered in pre-season causing him to miss Arsenal’s first three games.
His absence was a significant factor in the defeats that followed, just as his return has been a significant factor in the subsequent upturn in form. Arsenal have not seen enough of Partey at his best but there is no doubt he makes them better.”
