Arsenal ran riot against Tottenham, scoring three goals in the North London derby last weekend. Partey’s stunning 25-yard strike put the Gunners in front. However, Harry Kane’s penalty kick cancelled out his goal.
Nonetheless, Arsenal won thanks to goals from Jesus and Granit Xhaka, who put an end to Tottenham’s hopes.

Although Xhaka was named official Man of the Match, some Arsenal fans chose Partey as their MOTM. Rio Ferdinand, on the other hand disagrees insisting Saliba was actually their best player.
“How’s he even getting a shout out? He wasn’t their best player.”
‘He might not play three out of the next five [games]. Saliba was their best player. If they lose Jesus it’s curtains for them.”
