Thomas Partey won his first trophy as an Arsenal player on Sunday, August 6, 2023, when the Gunners defeated Manchester City 4-2 on penalties to win the 2023 FA Community Shield Cup at Wembley Stadium.
Partey played the entire match for Mikel Arteta's squad, but was cautioned in the 17th minute for a late challenge.
According to the rules of the competition, Arsenal, who finished second in the league, served as the opponent because City won both the league and the FA Cup.
Mikel Arteta's midfield consisted of Thomas Partey and Declan Rice, who was subsequently substituted.
Cole Palmer, a substitute English youth, scored the opening goal for Manchester City in the 77th minute, assisted by Kevin De Bruyne, and that was sufficient to give Pep Guardiola and his squad the lead.
Leandro Trossard's equalising goal in extra time for the Gunners was the result of Mikel Arteta's sub.
Rodri and captain De Bruyne both missed penalty kicks in Arsenal's 4-1 triumph in penalty shootouts, which put the Gunners in a position to win the title.
