Mikel Arteta makes Thomas Partey admission after midfielder's role in Tottenham goal

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has admitted that he was disappointed Thomas Partey left the pitch during their 2-0 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday night. Partey made his first appearance after being sidelined since the 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa due to an injury. During the game against Spurs, the 27-year-old walked off the field of play as Jose Mourinho's side launched a counter-attack and scored their second goal. “This is football,” said the Spaniard. “They scored a wonder goal and the second we got done on the break because Thomas Partey was not in position, he was injured. "I saw a team full of passion, dominating the team and creating chances but in the end it is about the end product and that is why they are top of the table. I think we had 44 crosses. "I wanted him on the pitch doing whatever he could for the team in that situation. Anyway he could not carry on playing. "Maybe we were a little too cautious with Son but it was a wonder goal. It is what they do really well, they did it once because the second we were a man down. "The fight and the spirit and the way they played in this stadium is to applause but it is not enough to win football matches because we are not scoring goals.” source - Express / Join us on Telegram
