Participant Score and efficiency versus Newcastle


Arsenal scored a dominant 3-0 win over Newcastle on Monday night that was considered one of the best performances of the season.

While Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will receive all the praise for his braces and Emile Smith-Rowe and Bukayo Saka will receive high praise even after sterling shows, the tide could turn for Mikel Arteta.

At the center of Arsenal’s sweeping victory was Thomas Partey. The midfielder was the glue that holds everything together and it was one of the Ghanaian’s best performances since arriving at Atletico Madrid.

The 27-year-old was calm and serene in the heart of Arsenal’s midfield. At certain points in the game the game hissed around him, but Partey’s sluggish manner and style slowed things down when The Gunners needed it.

He made 95% of his 58 passes against Newcastle, 20 of which were in the last third of the opposing half, and seven consisted of long passes.

Partey dictated the pace of Arsenal for long periods of play, producing the kind of performance that forced the club to trigger its £ 45million release clause from Atletico on the last day of the summer transfer window.

In a defensive capacity, the Ghanaian has also saved nine balls and intercepted three, which shows that he can get the ball back as well as attacks.

That feat marked a return to form for Partey after several mixed performances lately.

His 7.6 FC rating against Newcastle was his highest season together and a significant improvement on the 6.7 FC rating he had in his last game against Crystal Palace.

Arsenal fans are hoping the 27-year-old will maintain that performance into the second half of the season to climb the table.

Partey: What’s next?

Arsenal will be hoping for more to come from Partey. The midfielder has been struggling with injuries this season and has not really gotten going. He has put together a number of performances that he has shown regularly at Atletico Madrid.

If he can stay injury free in the second half of the season, Arsenal could shoot up the table.
