Thomas Partey Excels As Atletico Madrid End Winless Run

Ghana international, Thomas Partey featured in Atletico Madrid 3-1 victory over Espanyol at the Wanda Metropolitano in La Liga on Sunday afternoon.

The all-important win means Diego Simeone's side have ended their winless run to three games having drawn at Alaves and Sevilla earlier in the league.

Though Sergi Darder gave Espanyol the lead on Sunday, Atleti rallied back through Angel Correa, Alvaro Morata and Koke to move them within a point of leaders Barcelona.

Partey was on parade for the entire 90 minutes and received a yellow card for a foul five minutes from full-time.

The 26-year-old had 50 touches on the ball, made 50 accurate passes (80%), while on the defensive side the 26-year-old made one clearance, two interceptions and three tackles.

Partey is expected to join his Black Stars teammates today for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers where Ghana take on South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe.
