English Premier league winner and Ukrainian midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko has confidently chosen Ghanaian star Thomas Partey as best holding midfielder in the English Premier League. Just playing with Thomas Partey for a season and commencing a new one, believe the Premier League best holding midfielder is the Ghanaian.
He named Partey as better than Manchester City’s Rodri and Manchester United FC Casemiro after admitting former Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho was good watching him as kid.
Nevertheless, he thinks Partey is a midfield gem better than Rodri and Casemiro.
“I think Thomas Partey,” Zinchenko said when asked who’s the most underrated player in the Premier League. “He [Casemiro] is absolutely a world-class player as well. Casemiro, five Champions Leagues but for me, if you want me to choose one, Thomas Partey.
“I had debate in my head on who is actually the best holding midfielder I ever played with; the debate was between Fernandinho, Thomas Partey, and Rodri, but Thomas Partey, I don’t know (in awe).
“He (Partey) has everything. Rodri is absolutely so well fit for the City system, if you take him out, it’s different City. He’s like the main detail there. For me, in City, this is the hardest position to play and Rodri suits there so well.”
Partey enjoyed his best season for Arsenal during the 2022/23 campaign, but he was blamed for their Premier League title bid failure in the latter part of the season losing to Manchester City.
