Thomas Partey, Arsenal
The Red Devils fans express their displeasure after the Ghana midfielder was compared to their Brazil international.

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has been key for the Gunners' excellent run in the ongoing Premier League campaign.

The Mikel Arteta-led team drew 0-0 with Newcastle United on Tuesday night to open an eight-point gap on top of the table pending the result between Manchester City and Chelsea on Thursday. Partey has been vital for the North Londoners having featured in 14 out of the 17 matches his team has played.

Casemiro - who joined Manchester United from Real Madrid in the summer, has found his footing in the English top tier, scoring twice and assisting as many in the 14 matches he has played.

The Erik Ten Hag side are targeting Champions League football and are outside contenders of the Premier League crown.

Both Partey and Casemiro have been important for their respective teams; however, Manchester United faithful feel it is not right to compare the Black Star with the Brazil international.
