In previous seasons Partey usually played further forward. Once rodri left, he became their starting DM (Rodri only played one season for Atletico). I rate Partey, but I also liked Rodri and he is a bit shit for City. On paper, Partey should be a good fit for the EPL/Arsenal, but its going to be interesting to see how this is going to turn out. Could be brilliant, a bit underwhelming or everything inbetween.Wasn't Rodri meant to be the ducks nuts of Defensive midfielders when he signed with City? He was better than this bloke.
