Partey: I’d give myself four out of ten for Arsenal displays so far


T

homas Partey says he would give his performances for Arsenal since joining the club last year only four out of ten.

Partey’s signed for the Gunners from Atletico Madrid in a deadline day deal last October that was hailed as a coup for the club.

While the Ghanaian has shown glimpses of his talent, a string of injuries have largely prevented him from having the desired impact on a consistent basis.

With Granit Xhaka out injured, the Gunners are relying on Partey in the centre of midfield, with the inexperienced Albert Sambi Lokonga and Ainsley Maitland-Niles, as well as the rarely used Mohamed Elneny, Mikel Arteta’s only other fit options.

However, the 28-year-old came in for criticism after last week’s 3-2 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford, and will be desperate to bounce back as Arsenal face Everton this evening.

“I give myself four [out of 10], because there are moments I can really hurt the other team but there are also moments where I allow myself to lose focus and that’s when everything goes down,” Partey told Sky Sports.

“This is when you realise that you have to get better.

“From the start [of the Manchester United game] I had a couple of moments where I gave two balls away and someone watching on TV from home or in the stadium, it is normal that they see this.

“At the end, I have to be happy with some moments, I have to learn from the bad parts and try to do better. I think they demanded more and personally I know I can give more. I have to keep working and at the end I will get the results.”
