- Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey registered an assist in Arsenal's 2-1 home win over Brentford on Saturday at the Emirates
- Partey was rated as one of the best performers for Arsenal although Bukayo Saka was named Man of the Match
- Second half goals from Emile-Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka were enough to hand victory to the Gunners to boost their top four chances
Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey played an influential role in Arsenal's 2-1 home win over Brentford at the Emirates.
The 28-year-old put up an incredible performance and provided an assist to hand Mikel Arteta's side a hard-fought victory.
Partey lasted the entire duration of the game as he helped his side seal all three points on Saturday.
The assist came in the 79th minute when Partey set up Bukayo Saka whose shot flew past Raya and went in off the post.
Arsenal were the dominant team throughout the 90 minutes as the visitors offered very little going forward.
But an early second half goal by Smith Rowe and Saka strike secured the three points for the Gunners.
Brentford got a consolation goal at the end through Christian Noergaard but it wasn't enough to steal a point.
Partey is Arsenal's highest-paid player
Partey is now the highest paid player at Arsenal following Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's transfer to Spanish giants Barcelona.
Arsenal agreed to let Aubameyang join Barcelona on free transfer, 18 months from end of his £350,000-a-week contract.
The Gunners are estimated to be making a saving of around £25m in wages with Aubameyang's departure. But his exit means the highest earner at Arsenal is now Thomas Partey at £200K-a-week pay.
