There's no doubt that, Brazilian striker and winger Gabriel Jesus was the best player in this afternoon Arsenal's game with Leicester City. Gabriel Jesus scored 2 goals and provided two assists in their 4-2 win over Leicester City. But one of Arsenal's players who was outstanding but most people did not see is Thomas Partey.
Thomas Partey did not score nor provided an assist but his role in their win can never be underestimated or underrated. He was the pivot in this afternoon game.
Arsenal played a 4-2-3-1 formation. Thomas Partey played with Xhaka in the two midfield position. Both players are known to be two defensive midfielders but in today's game only Thomas Partey played the defensive role.
Thomas Partey played the holding midfield position. He was the holding midfielder and he played so well that Xhaka got the opportunity to move forward to join the other attackers. This even helped Xhaka to score the 3th goal for Arsenal.
