Ghana international Thomas Partey has revealed how Arsenal can beat Manchester United on Sunday.
The two English giants are set to square off in a titanic Premier League match at the Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester.
Partey, who recently joined Arsenal from Spamish giants Atletico Madrid, is convinced that the Gunners are the perfect place for him.
“I could not believe it [when I found out I was starting],” Partey told the club’s official website.
“I was a bit nervous but I always get these nerves when I play most of my game, so I was like, ‘OK, let me keep it cool and I’ll be fine’.
“Then when we started the game I thought we had control of the ball and so many chances, and we were unlucky. It’s part of football and we have to keep working.”
The 27-year-old midfielder has played three games for the Gunners including two Premier League matches and he believes the team is on the right path.
“We have to keep working hard because we have a great team of great players. I think we’re going to be successful. I think I’m in the team that I’m looking forward to playing for,” he added.
“They have everything, a good manager, good players, the right mentality and the way they play is very good. It’s the best place for me.”
Partey, who faced Real Madrid in the Madrid Derby, believes that Arsenal can defeat United if they put a lot pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
“Manchester United are a great team with great players and important players,” he said.
“If we do our work well, if we go in and fight for points, if we put a lot of pressure on them, we’ll be able to win.”
