'Redemption arc' - Arsenal fans single unsung hero out for special praise after Watford


The Arsenal faithful have taken to social media in their numbers on Sunday, to single one at times underappreciated member of the club's squad out for special praise.

The Gunners, of course, were back in action a short time ago.

On the back of a trio of successive Premier League victories, Mikel Arteta's men made the trip to Vicarage Road to face Watford, aware that another 3-point haul would guide them clear of Manchester United into the top-4.

And, when all was said and done, emerge triumphant is precisely what Arsenal managed.

Taking to social media in their numbers, those of a Gunners persuasion have singled the likes of goalscorers Odegaard and Saka out for widespread praise.

The player in question? Thomas Partey.
