Thomas Partey left frustrated by Arsenal team-mates for decision in Leicester loss

Thomas Partey’s frustrations with his Arsenal team-mates were spotted during the loss to Leicester.

The Ghanian midfielder could not help his side avoid a 1-0 defeat to the Foxes as substitute Jamie Vardy struck in the 80th minute.

Making his home debut after a £45m transfer from Atletico Madrid, he helped create 12 shots on goal – but could not help find the target.

In the clip, there are 30 minutes of play left at the Emirates Stadium.

Leicester are playing the ball out from their defence through full-back Christian Fuchs on the left wing.
