Premier League legend Gary Neville recently mentioned that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta deserves credit for dropping Thomas Partey in the Gunner’s most recent outing against Newcastle.
Arsenal faced a spirited Newcastle outfit in the Premier League last week, recording a crucial 2-0 win at St.James’ Park in the process.
In what was a decision that raised eyebrows, Arteta dropped Partey to the bench for the second game running, allowing Jorginho to have a run in the starting XI.
According to Neville, Arteta deserves credit for the move, as the former Chelsea midfielder showcased his class against the Magpies.
“Mikel Arteta deserves a lot of credit for picking Jorginho (over Partey),” Neville told Sky Sports, as per Ghana web.
“Many would have said get Thomas Partey back in there.
“the class Martin Odegaard showed in the first 30 minutes was outstanding.”
