Thomas Partey lasted the entire duration for Atlético Madrid in their 1-0 defeat to Barcelona at the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday.
Despite picking up a booking as early as the 8th minute, the Ghanaian international put up a commanding display against the defending La Liga Champions.
Partey was always a willing runner in Atlético’s midfield, his tackling, positioning and passing all came to the fold in what was another top notch performance.
Diego Simeone’s men were the better side for most parts of the game, but as often is the case, Lionel Messi once again proved to be the difference.
The Argentine maestro scored a brilliant late goal to ensure Barca snatched all three point to return to the summit of the table.
