The 30 year old was flanked by Martin Odegaard and Declan Rice and the trio’s contributions were not lost on Arteta who complimented Partey’s efforts on his return to the starting lineup.

“We thought it was a really good game for Thomas [Partey] to come back, he looks like he is in rhythm. He stepped up and had a great performance and was really important for the team.”

The win comes in the lead up to Premier League games for fellow title contenders Liverpool (on April 24 against Everton) and Manchester City on April 25 (against Brighton and Hove Albion).
