Thomas Partey can match Arsenal invincible Patrick Vieira – Roy Keane

Thomas Partey
Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane hailed the incredible performance of Thomas Partey in Arsenal’s 1-0 away victory over Manchester United on Sunday.

Thomas Partey has put on an outstanding display against Red Devils on matchday 7 of the English Premier League.

Indeed, gunners won their very first game at Old Trafford since 2006, ending then a 14-year winless run with a penalty of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The 27-year-old midfielder has played wonderfully his box-to-box role with stunning statistics as he touched the ball 79 times, completed three dribbles and won ten duels.

Thee former Atletico Madrid was deservedly named man of the match after that five-star show.

“He was outstanding. He’s obviously no mug having played in big games.” Roy Keane said.

“When you watch a player live that’s when you can judge a player and the more I look at him the more I wish he was in the United midfield.

“He’s big, strong and aggressive – and he can pass it forward. He can deal with the ball.

“I had my battles with Vieira and I think this kid has got a chance of matching what Patrick used to do.” he added.
