Ghana international midfielder Thomas Teye Partey has reacted after scoring his first goal for English side Arsenal.

The 28-year-old headed in a cross from Emile Smith Rowe to shoot the Gunners in the lead against Aston Villa last Friday.

Aubameyang’s rebound from the penalty spot and Smith-Rowe’s deflected shot ensured that Arsenal picked a 3-1 win over Aston Villa.

Partey has subsequently become the first Ghanaian to score a goal for the North London club in the Premier League.

Reacting to his goal, he indicated he has been waiting for the moment long time and said it is the right moment to score for the club.

“The team knew what to do we had to keep fighting and keep our intensity. At the end with the quality we have we are able to get results.

"All the team was frustrated and we wanted a win. That was the mentality we brought to this game today and we were able to get our result.

"I've been waiting for this moment for a long time. I think it was the right moment to have it and I'm very happy.
