Stats show that Thomas Partey is far ahead of all other Arsenal midfielders

Arsenal managed to finally land Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid after a long pursuit of the midfielder.

The Ghanaian has been the club’s top midfield target for a long time and he is expected to be the final jigsaw that completes the puzzle for the Gunners.

If Arsenal expects him to become an upgrade to their current midfield options, then they will not be disappointed. This is because the Ghanaian midfielder beats every midfielder in his new team in different stats.

Sun Sports made a comparison of his stats and that of the midfielders he will meet at the Emirates from the 2018/19 season, and they were no match.

Partey has scored three goals since that time, while no Arsenal midfielder has scored more than once since that time.

He also made more tackles (76), more interceptions (44), recoveries (240), won more duels (241), and completed more dribbles (64).

The closest player Arsenal had to some of the Ghanaian’s stat was Granit Xhaka who is expected to become his crime partner in Arsenal’s midfield.

Partey looks like the player that Arsenal has been yearning for since they lost Patrick Vieira.

    What of number of games played during the review period (and probably minutes). That would provide better context. Surely, everyone there did not play the same amount of games over that period. Dani Ceballos stats is surprisingly very good, considering he probably played a lot less matches than Granit. And what of the FA cup goal against SU? Or was only league matches considered?

      Absolutely, Maxis. Unless I’m missing something, the stats are all but useless unless we know how many minutes each player played.

        Without more information, I’m not sure if they even give an indication of a player’s injury record or whether or not they were selected by the manager.

        Ozil’s stats would be rubbish since lock down but then he hasn’t played. Likewise Martinelli’s recent stats as a striker…

        But maybe I’m missing something.

          What were Ozil’s stat’s over the last 2 seasons, similarly Partey’s stat’s over the same period?

    I wish xhaka would sit down with partey and study old videos of how viera and petit worked together. If the two could form a partnership like that it would be amazing.

    Bring wilshere back, a half-fit wilshere is better than most our mids. He may actually help bring the beautifulgame back

      Can Wilshere last a game now, or has his lifestyle outside football caught up with him?
