Partey wins Community Shield with Arsenal

Ghana deputy skipper Thomas Partey was impressive for Arsenal as they beat Manchester City to win the FA Community Shield on Sunday.

In a fiercely contested match on Sunday, the score remained tied, forcing the outcome to be decided on penalties.

Despite Manchester City’s early domination, the Gunners continued, absorbing every ounce of pressure and demonstrating their efficiency with the fewest opportunities they had.

The game’s first goal was scored by a combination of Kevin De Bryune and Cole Palmer, two of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola’s replacements, after a scoreless first half. In the 77th minute, Palmer calmly completed De Bruyne’s pass.

Late in the game, Partey received a head injury, which was almost like a setback for the Gunners who were trying to equalise.

The Black Stars midfielder was bandaged, but he was still able to play on and eventually helped his team get the necessary leveler when Trossard came off the bench to score from Saka’s assist in injury time.

After a 1-1 tie in regulation, the game went to penalties, where Arsenal capitalised to win 4-1 when De Bruyne and Rodri both missed.

Given that the season is slated to begin next week and Partey’s ability to play for 90 minutes despite the late injury, the Gunners may decide not to sell him.

Partey seemed destined to stay with Arsenal, despite numerous reports suggesting his departure from the North London club.
