Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey displayed outstanding form on Sunday while in action for Arsenal in the London derby against Tottenham Hotspurs in the English Premier League.

At the Emirates Stadium today, the Black Stars talisman started alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield to help the Gunners chase a win against Spurs in a matchday 6 encounter of the ongoing 2021/2022 season.

Feeling good and in his best shape, Thomas Partey bossed the midfield and was seen linking up play from the defense to the attack in delightful manner.

In a game that produced four goals, the midfielder was one of the bright spots of Arsenal team and deservedly earned a high rating of 7.4 according to detailed statistics recorded by SofasScore in the 90 minutes he played.

After recess, Tottenham Hotspurs fought and netted a consolation through Son Heung-Min in the 79th minute.

It was however not enough to save the visitors from a defeat in the London derby.
