Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey looks a man transformed this season, with the Ghana international having added goals to his game.

The hard-running midfielder, who could only conjure 987 playing minutes for the Spanish club side last season - scoring once - has already accumulated over a thousand minutes during the current campaign.

Partey has played 15 times for Atletico this season across all competitions, featuring in all but one of the club's Spanish La Liga encounters.

Often deployed in a defensive midfield role, the 24-year-old's ability to not only create goal-scoring opportunities, but find the back of the net himself has been notable.

With four goals to his name this season, Partey has proven that his hat-trick for the Black Stars in Brazzaville was not a fluke, and if anything, he should be deployed in a more attacking role more often.
