Pundit John Hartson praises midfielder Thomas Partey for his brilliant performance against Manchester United at the MetLife Stadium.

Speaking on TalkSPORT, Hartson was discussing about the Ghanaian international’s future. There’s been lot of speculation about Partey’s future this summer.

Partey has been linked with a move to a Saudi Arabia club in this transfer window. However, Manager Mikel Arteta said in his press-conference before the United game that he’ll not sell him this summer.

Arteta also suggested that new signing Declan Rice and Thomas Partey will be playing together this season. The Spaniard still has faith on the Ghanaian international.

Pundit John Hartson believes that Arsenal are making the right to decision by keeping Partey. He joined the rest of the team in pre-season tour in the US and midfielder also made his first apperances last night.

Partey played the last 30 minutes replacing Declan Rice against Manchester United. He had a brilliant outing, completing every attempted pass and while won both of his duel.

Hartson raves Partey and said :-

“He’s defensively very good, reading situations, he’s a really good passer of the ball, he can come out, he doesn’t try anything too difficult.

“[He’s a] solid defensive midfield player, he can maraud forward at times but a really, really good player.

“And if you can imagine a Partey, a [Declan] Rice as a part of that three in the middle of the park, maybe an [Martin] Odegaard as well to come in there.

“[Bukayo] Saka and [Gabriel] Martinelli either side of [Gabriel] Jesus, you’ve got real good players and then you’ve got the likes of [Kai] Havertz coming in.”
