Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey put up a brilliant display as Arsenal handed Watford a 3-2 defeat in the Premier League on Sunday.

Playing on Ghana’s Independence Day, the 28-year-old was spectacular in midfield as Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli netted to ensure all three points for the Gunners.

Even before kick-off, the stakes were high for Partey as the match coincided with Ghana’s National Independence Day.

Although he did not score, for these fans, the former Atletico Madrid man still showed excellence on the day.

With three points, Arsenal and Partey have taken a big step on the league table, making an entry into the top four and with a chance of securing Champions League football next season.

But it was not all praise for Partey as some fans chose to make fun of his constant failed attempts to find the target from long range.

Do you think Arsenal can maintain their top-four spot to earn Champions League qualification at the end of the season?

What was your take of Partey’s performance on the day?

Again, do you think the Ghanaian should give up efforts to score from outside the box? Let us know in the comments.
