Martin Keown said on BT Sports 1 (10:05 pm, April 8, 2021) that he was disappointed in the display of Arsenal defensive midfielder Thomas Partey tonight.

The Arsenal legend said that Partey did not seem to have the legs to run across the field at Emirates Stadium, as the Europa League quarter-final first leg against Slavia Prague ended in a 1-1 draw.

The 27-year-old Ghanaian international defensive midfielder started the game and was substituted in the 78th minute.

Keown said on BT Sports 1 (10:05 pm, April 8, 2021): “Part and also tonight was another that really disappointed me. I watched it tonight. Seeing him live here, we are not entering the stadium that often, he did not have the legs to move around the field, he was not really commanding that midfield.

How did Thomas Partey play for Arsenal tonight?

Partey is a very good defensive midfielder who has done relatively well with Arsenal so far this season despite his injury problems.

Against Slavia on Thursday night, the 27-year-old left a lot to be desired and should have done better.

The Ghana international defensive midfielder struggled with the ball and was unable to propel the team as much as he does, although he protected the four ball well.

According to WhoScored, Partey made an off-target shot, made a key pass, had 80.5% passing accuracy, earned a header, took 53 touches, attempted a dribble, and made two tackles, two interceptions and a punt.
