"T for Thomas," wrote Mensah in the comment section as quoted by Pulse.

Partey has been key to Arsenal's blistering campaign so far as the Gunners comfortably sit top of the Premier League table, five points adrift of close rivals Manchester City.

With the Ghana international in Arsenal's squad, they are yet to lose a league game.

Meanwhile, five-time UEFA Champions League winner Casimero has been pivotal to Manchester United's epic turn around this season, as they remain unbeaten in their last 16 games.

While Partey and Casimero hog the headlines, Rodri has been City's unsung hero this season.
