There is more to come from Thomas Partey - Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta

Published on: 23 October 2020

Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta has lauded fantastic Thomas Partey following his impressive performance against Rapid Wien in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The Ghana international who joined the Premier League side this summer started the game and was impressive and dominated the game in the midfield.

The former Atletico Madrid player was a calm presence in midfield, breaking down attacks and building play with apparently effortless ease.

It was only Partey's second appearance in an Arsenal shirt after a late cameo in the 1-0 defeat by Manchester City in the Premier League at the weekend, and Arteta is excited by what is to come from the Ghana international.

"I think he held the midfield by himself in the second half when we were a little bit more open," said the Arsenal boss.

"He started to take more chances attacking certain spaces with some players.

"I think he was fantastic and there is much more to come from him."

Partey will be hoping to maintain his performance when they play Leicester City on Saturday at the Emirates Stadium.
