Thomas Partey drops masterclass as Arsenal thrash Chelsea in pre-season friendly

Ghana midfielder, Thomas Partey was stunning for Arsenal in their 4-0 convincing win over Chelsea in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.

Partey, who was replaced in the 72nd minute of the game put up an impressive display as he helped the Gunners cruise to a comfortable victory at Orlando’s Camping World Stadium.

New summer signing Gabriel Jesus struck his fourth goal in an Arsenal shirt following his summer transfer from Manchester City with a clever dinked finish from a Granit Xhaka pass after 16 minutes.

Capitalizing on another sloppy giveaway from a below-par Chelsea, a determined Arsenal team made it 2-0 in the 36th minute when Martin Odegaard produced a neat turn and finish.

Chelsea came close to reducing their deficit right before half-time when Mason Mount struck a post with a fine effort from the angle on the right of the box.

After the recess, Bukayo Saka tapped in a third from a rebound following Mendy’s save from Granit Xhaka’s volley before Albert Sambi Lokonga added the gloss with an injury-time  header
