One day Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey will score a world champion.
The Ghana international has scored just one goal in 44 Premier League appearances since joining Arsenal from Atletico Madrid in a £45m transfer in 2020.
That came a little earlier in the season in a 3-1 win over Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium.
Since then, however, the midfield general has been trying – and failing – to improve his record.
Partey almost doubled his goal for Arsenal this afternoon against Watford by snaking just wide of the post in the 28th minute.
And Alan Smith, speaking as co-commentator, lives on Sky Sportssaid: “His shooting this season hasn’t been the best – I even think it’s a bit of a joke among Arsenal fans!”
It’s a matter of time before Partey scores a belter for the Gunners.
That’s because even Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has hinted he has every reason to have ambitious shots, demonstrated by his ability as a global star behind the scenes at London Colney.
Partey’s waste aside, today was brilliant for the Gunners.
Arteta’s side have moved up to fourth place in the Premier League table and best of all they have three games ahead of their closest rivals for Champions League qualification, Manchester United.
