An Arsenal fan made a horrific blunder when he tweeted “Thomas Partey is the best number 18 in the Premier League.” on October 6th 2020.
Well that has however escalated quickly as at 7th of December Manchester United currently sit 5th position with a game in hand while Arsenal on the other hand are gasping for breath with only a few points away from relegation zone. They unfortunately sit 15th after 11 games played.
Manchester United fans laughed off suggestions from Arsenal supporters that Thomas Partey is a superior player to Bruno Fernandes.
Partey was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League all summer and was unsurprisingly rumoured to be of interest to United though we understands he was not a genuine target.
United sealed four signings on deadline day, landing Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles, Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo, and Arsenal were also busy – triggering Partey’s release clause at Atletico Madrid to end speculation over his future.
While few would disagree that the signing significantly strengthens Mikel Arteta’s squad, some Arsenal fans have already compared the Ghana international to United maestro Fernandes, believing the former is a superior player.
United fans, unsurprisingly, laughed off the claim on social media.
