Former Arsenal centre-back Martin Keown has raised his concerns about Thomas Partey’s problems to manage the midfield following the 1-1 draw with Slavia Prague in the UEFA Europa League. The Gunners were on course to take a one-goal advantage into next week’s quarter-final second-leg with the Czech outfit after Nicolas Pepe scored for them.

Partey, as well, tonight, was another player that really disappointed me,” Keown told BT Sport. “Watching it live here, and we’re not getting into the stadiums that often, he didn’t look like he had the legs to get around the pitch.

“He wasn’t really bossing that midfield, and credit to them, by the way, Slavia Prague because they’ve got lots of good players and made good substitutions. But that’s an area of the pitch that I would’ve thought by now, he would be bossing.”
