Why Thomas Partey got off to a surprise start against Wimbledon


Why Thomas Partey got off to a surprise start against Wimbledon

Arsenal host Wimbledon in the third round of the Carabao Cup

Following the 6-0 demolition of West Brom in the second round of the Carabao Cup, Arsenal will host League 1 team AFC Wimbledon tonight. The Gunners are looking to build momentum after back-to-back 1-0 victories that kicked off their season following a past international break at the foot of the Premier League.

There were high hopes that the weaker opposition and the nature of the competition, traditionally one in which the youngsters are played, would see Mikel Arteta offer playing time to some of the most impressive members of the U23 team, such as Charlie Patiño. .

However, as was the case against the Baggies, the Spaniard opted for a strong starting eleven, which includes Bernd Leno, Rob Holding, Ainsley Maitland Niles and Alexandre Lacazette. While all could be classified as substitute players, none offer the youthful excitement that the Arsenal faithful longed for. However, if they get the job done, there will be no room for complaints.

Why did Thomas Partey start?

However, one of the most surprising players named to start the proceedings tonight was Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey. Having proven so crucial for the Gunners, and with the North London derby just four days away (a match he limped off last season), fans were left understandably confused as to why he took a chance in this tie.

However, Football.London journalist Chris Wheatley shed light on the situation and revealed:

“Thomas Partey asked to play tonight as he seeks to sharpen his fitness ahead of Sunday’s North London derby.”

If the midfielder comes out unscathed, it would be a huge advantage for him to have more playing time under his belt. However, if he is injured, more than a few Arsenal fans will start pointing fingers.
