Arsenal’s captain Martin Odegaard has said that Ghanaian international Thomas Partey’s goal for the club in the north London derby yesterday, came off a pre-match plan.
Arsenal ended Tottenham’s unbeaten start in the Premier League with a 3-1 victory in Saturday’s north London derby.
Thomas Partey gave the Gunners the first goal in the game before Harry Kane equalized with a penalty. Kane’s goal made him the first player in Premier League history to score 100 away goals.
Tottenham defender Emerson Royal was shown a red card for a foul on Gabriel Martinelli, and shortly after this, Granit Xhaka gave Arsenal the third goal in the match.
