‘We have missed him for months’ – Arteta on Thomas Partey

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has once again reiterated the importance of Thomas Partey to his squad following the midfielder’s performance in the win over Tottenham Hotspur.

The Ghanaian played all the minutes available as the Gunners claimed all three points in the North London Derby on Sunday afternoon.

Partey has featured in the last three games for Arsenal including starting the last two against Chelsea and Tottenham.

The Black Stars midfielder has had to sit out the majority of the season due to injury but his return in the final stretch of the season delights the Arsenal boss.

“He’s a really important player and we have missed him for many months. He looks in great shape,” the Spaniard said after the game.

“It’s his presence, his quality, his physicality and his experience.”

Partey and Arsenal will hope they can win the Premier League title this year after missing out to Manchester City the season before.
