Xhaka is average, partey is a intelligent player I seen a few of his Atletico games and I always liked him but he has been inconsistent. When he is on form he is a beast. Can drive foward, tackle,pass etc. Just do not think we can always put his poor games down to injury. Maybe it has something to with arteta system that makes him that way. Still think partey should be doing better then he isI was referring to his overall ability when fit. He's better than Xhaka. His shots have been admittedly poor but at least they're on target now . If you compare Xhakas best game here to the performances of the other midfielders, I just prefer all of them to him. I just can't stand the safe plodding and this obsession with stability.
