EPL: Rio Ferdinand slams Arsenal for awarding Partey, names best Arsenal player in latest win


Manchester United’s former defender, Rio Ferdinand has slammed Arsenal for handling the man of the match award to Ghanaian midfielder, Thomas Partey after their 3-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday.

The Old Trafford legend disagreed with the Arsenal supporters who awarded Partey, insisting the price should have gone to 21-year-old French defender, William Saliba.

Arsenal defeated their north London rivals, Tottenham on Saturday as they ran out 3-1 winners over Antonio Conte’s side at the Emirates Stadium.

Partey was one of the scorers of Arsenal’s goals against Spurs and was named the ‘man of the match’ by the club’s supporters but Ferdinand feels the award was not meant for him.

Saliba was praised by fans and pundits after the match notably for his ability to curtail England and Tottenham captain, Harry Kane.

“How’s he even getting a shout out? He wasn’t their best player,” Ferdinand said on Vibe.

“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.”
