Replying to my own post. Had to think about what type of injury would make you play gingerly like an old man and miss so many easy passes…. Yep, groin pull. And that is what I just found out he had recently.Just finished match. Had to stay on radio silence all day.
Partey first half was miserable; he looked like he aged 10 years. Second half was better, but not the impact we expect. Just not sure what is going on with him.
He's 28 and playing like ****, consistently.
Rip up our midfield once again. It's all so ****ing rubbish.
Been that way for 10 years.
Partey has been shocking this season. Hate Guendo all you like, but he usually thrives in games like yesterday.
I know A-M hates Torreira but it's undeniable that he's had a better Arsenal career than Partey.
Aside from Furious, who somehow place Xhaka mysteriously on a pedestal, no one really hated Torreira.
If anything, I hated Emery for moving him further up the pitch where it was clear his skillset diminished.
This. It takes two to play a succesful tango in midfield.Xhaka and Partey is still our best pairing as it stands.
