Former Black Stars midfielder Michael Essien is currently trending at number 1 on micro-blogging site Twitter.

The current hashtag of the former Chelsea star is about a heated debate on who is the best player between Ghanaian duo Thomas Teye Partey and Michael Essien.

With global football suspended due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic, football fans on social media have resulted at times to comparing players to entertain themselves while they wait for the resumption of football.

The majority of the users who took part in the debate were angry that people will compare a FIFA Best player award nominee, CAF player of the year nominee, and a veteran in European football to Partey who has just started making a name for himself in Europe.

Joy FM's Owuraku Ampofo who was arguing in favor of the Atletico Madrid star said"Essien scored 9 goals for the Black Stars in 58 appearances. It took Partey less than half of those games (27) to score 10 goals for Ghana."

The tweet didn't go down well with many football lovers who claimed that those who are tweeting in favor of Partey are novices in the game. See some of the reactions below.
