The Ghanaian midfielder was yet to get on the Gunners scoresheet despite having found the net for his country on a regular basis.
His goal vs Villa ended a run of 39 appearances for the club without managing to find the net and Partey himself was delighted to finally be an Arsenal goalscorer and to claim victory.
Speaking to The Mirror after the game, Partey said:
“The team knew what to do we had to keep fighting and keep our intensity. At the end with the quality we have we are able to get results.
“All the team was frustrated and we wanted a win. That was the mentality we brought to this game today and we were able to get our result.
“I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time. I think it was the right moment to have it and I’m very happy.
“The team performed very good. We have to do this every weekend and every game and with this we can achieve beautiful things.
“They deserve it. they have been supporting us when we have been down and when things have gone bad. This win is for them and I hope they enjoy it.”
