'Fabulous': Arsenal fans rave about Thomas Partey for Manchester City performance
Arsenal put in a spirited performance against Manchester City this afternoon as they narrowly lost to Pep Guardiola’s men in a frantic game at The Emirates Stadium.
Bukayo Saka had given Arsenal a deserved lead before the break. It was a reward for the Gunners in an opening 45 minutes in which they showed all the hallmarks of a top four team. However, the game changed in the space of five minutes in the second period.
Nathan Ake cleared off the line before Gabriel Martinelli fired wide with the net at his mercy. Seconds later, Gabriel was booked for a second time and given his marching orders. The Brazilian’s first caution coming from a needless stamping of the penalty spot before Riyad Mahrez fired in from 12 yards. And at the end, Rodri knocked in the winner to ensure a cruel finish for Arsenal.
However, there were positives for the Gunners. One of whom was midfielder, Thomas Partey. The Ghanaian star delivered a superb performance in the middle of the park and proved just why the Gunners paid more than £40m for him. Naturally, social media was full of comments from Arsenal fans who were impressed with Partey today.
Here, then, is what some Arsenal fans had to say about Thomas Partey against Manchester City today.
Have to say this, Partey had his best game physically and technically for Arsenal. My man of the match. Rodri should not be on the field. On to the next one Gunners, this was planned.
