After a disappointing defeat to Manchester United in the Premier League, Thomas Partey opened up about his Arsenal struggles.

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey admits he is yet to return to his best form since returning from injury last month.

The Ghana international played in his third game back on Thursday but couldn’t make the desired impact, as Arsenal fell to a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The midfielder concedes he is still not at his best, although he remains upbeat about the team’s progress.

“I think the team came out to win, we did everything we could, we played well, we created a lot of chances and I think that we were unlucky,” Partey told the club’s media.

“They scored two goals and then a penalty. The team tried to improve, go forward and look for a goal, for the equalizer, but in the end it’s football, we have to forget about this game, we have to think of our next game, we have to do better and also to win.

“The team is improving, each and everyone is doing our best.

“For me, I have to keep on doing my best, keep trying, keep improving, try to come back to my best, because the team needs me, the team needs us.

“I think we’re improving each day and it’s gonna be good. If we want to be at the top it’s normal that we have to fight, we have to be under control and try to win the games.”
