Thomas Partey was in the Atletico Madrid side which claimed a 3-1 victory over Espanyol at the Wanda Metropolitano in La Liga on Sunday afternoon.

The Spanish capital club suffered a disappointing 2-1 Champions League loss at Bayer Leverkusen in midweek, with the Ghanaian midfielder scoring an own goal in the tie.

That result stretched their winless run to three games having drawn at Alaves and Sevilla earlier in the league.

Though Sergi Darder gave Espanyol the lead on Sunday, Atleti rallied back through Angel Correa, Alvaro Morata and Koke to move them within a point of leaders Barcelona.

Partey was on parade for the entire 90 minutes and received a yellow card for a foul five minutes from full-time.

He had 50 touches on ball, made 50 accurate passes (80%), while on the defensive side the 26-year-old made one clearance, two interceptions and three tackles.

His attention will now shift towards the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers where Ghana take on South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe.
