Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey was involved as Arsenal impressively beat Chelsea to continue their strong pre-season form in the US.
The Gunners won 4-0 in Orlando, Florida., with the Black Stars’ deputy captain playing a key role for Mikel Arteta’s team.
Arsenal have now scored 19 goals in pre-season, with £45 million summer signing Gabriel Jesus scoring after only 15 minutes.
Martin Odegaard doubled Arsenal’s lead in the first half, before Bukayo Saka made it 3-0 after the break and Albert Sambi Lokonga added a fourth in stoppage time.
Partey is in excellent form heading into the new season, which is great news for Arsenal, who are aiming for a top-four finish.
Arsenal narrowly missed out on securing Champions League football in 2021/22, which can be attributed to Partey’s absence due to injury at a critical stage of the season.
Partey was an intimidating presence in Saturday’s game, and he improved as the game progressed.
There were a couple of sloppy errors in possession, but the Ghanaian was pretty tidy overall and he ignited the sequence for Arsenal’s second goal.
