Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta was delighted with the tone Thomas Partey set for the team on his return to the starting lineup.
Thomas Partey impressed his gaffer after making his return from injury.
He assisted Arsenal’s first goal as they hammered Newcastle by 3-0 last night.
He lasted for 66 minutes before he was substituted to work his way back to full match fitness.
Arsenal head coach Mike Arteta could not hide his joy with the performance.
“I’m really happy, he got better and better as the game went on. He had a big influence, he gave us things that are different to any other player and we have now have to protect him because he’s missed a lot of football in the last couple of months. I’m really happy with his performance”
The Gunners sit 10th on the league table and have kept 5 consecutive clean sheets for the first time in a row.
