Video: Check out Partey’s 24 minutes playtime in Manchester City-Arsenal clash

Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey showcased his importance to Arsenal’s title aspirations with an impactful performance against Manchester City on March 31, 2024.

Despite being limited to twenty-four minutes of play in the goalless draw at Etihad Stadium, the 30-year-old demonstrated signs of returning to peak condition after facing injury setbacks throughout the 2023/2024 season.

Partey’s standout moment came when he orchestrated a brilliant play that bypassed four Manchester City players, setting up Arsenal’s best scoring opportunity of the match.

Receiving a pass from Japanese defender Takehiro Tomiyasu, Partey skillfully manoeuvered past City striker Erling Haaland and evaded the pressure from three opposing players before delivering a precise pass to Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard.

Although Odegaard’s subsequent shot was unsuccessful, Partey’s overall performance showcased his sharpness and ability to dictate play with accurate passes and timely interceptions.

His calming influence in midfield provided Arsenal with much-needed control in a match where they faced significant defensive pressure.

Partey’s return to form is a positive development for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, especially with a hectic schedule of eight games awaiting the team in April.
