“Arsenal’s most important player” Kevin Campbell lavishes praise on Arsenal man

Kevin Campbell has lavished praise on in-form Thomas Partey and insists the Ghanaian is the most important player at Arsenal now.

Partey struggled at the start of his career at the Emirates, but he is now a prominent member of the first team.

The Gunners have been solid at the back and in midfield, thanks in part to his knack for breaking opposition play and dominating the midfield in different matches.

This has helped them earn important results in this second half of the season.

The likes of Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard have been in fine form too, but Campbell believes Partey is in a class of his own now.

He tells Football Insider:

“He’s obviously taken his time to settle. There were a lot of injuries in the early days, his performances were up and down – he himself gave himself a 4/10.

“But since he’s come back from the African Cup of Nations, all of a sudden – he’s been nothing short of remarkable.

“They’ve tweaked it at times, pushing Granit Xhaka further forward in that pivot.

“He’s been outstanding recently, and Arsenal’s most important player as far as I’m concerned.

“Everyone’s starting to see his final form. Protecting the two defenders, excellent on the ball, great passes through to Martin Odegaard, scoring goals.

“His all-around game is coming through very nicely.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Partey is showing why we paid so much to bring him to London from Atletico Madrid.

He is undoubtedly one of the finest midfielders in European football, but he needed to prove that at Arsenal.

Hopefully, he would only get better from now on and we can reap the rewards of his fine form.

  1. Partey is world class and second to non when on top of his game.

    My wish for next season is to partner him with Yuri telemans and I also wish we don’t lose Xhaka he’s been good lately. Xhaka would provide good cover and competition. Losing Xhaka would weaken us honestly.

  2. What does Xhaka add to this team?? When was the last time he scored or gave an assist as a midfielder?

    Agree with on Tielemans though.

  3. Partey is head and shoulders, our best midfielder since Vierra. His problem is his partner is not upto scratch. He has had a slow start but it was obvious what he had, it is now starting to show now he is up to speed with the prem and its physicality. He and Xhaka are not a pair, they are individuals and when we get someone better we will have a great midfield. Neves or Bissouma would be great.

  4. Agreed,just add a partner who can also attack then we will tear opponents apart like i said before xhaka being on top of his game is all we need to be a force to reckon with but as it stands it shows he is not the man for the job so we should go all out for tielemans,ruiz or neves then i beleive we will become well oiled machine firing in all cylinders and oh ceballos too as backup.

  5. Pound for pound in Thomas Partey Arsenal has the best defensive midfielder in the premier league, that you can take to the bank.

    A strongly believe the best is yet to come form him , as I have even seen him in better form than he is in presently.
    Have been telling my neighbor about this lad for years
