Thomas Partey admits he still needs to get back to his best after Arsenal’s defeat to Manchester United on Thursday evening.
Mikel Arteta’s side took an early lead at Old Trafford through Emile Smith Rowe but went behind following goals from Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Martin Odegaard pulled Arsenal level but the Norwegian midfielder then gave away a penalty which Ronaldo converted to give United their 3-2 victory.
Partey, meanwhile, was played his third game back since returning from injury last month but the Ghana international struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford.
And the midfielder concedes that he is still yet to reach his best following Arsenal’s loss to United.
‘I think the team came out to win, we did everything we could, we played well, we created a lot of chances and I think that we were unlucky,’ Partey told Arsenal Media.
‘They scored two goals and then a penalty. The team tried to improve, go forward and look for a goal, for the equaliser, but in the end it’s football, we have to forget about this game, we have to think of our next game, we have to do better and also to win.
‘The team is improving, each and everyone is doing our best.
‘For me, I have to keep on doing my best, keep trying, keep improving, try to come back to my best, because the team needs me, the team needs us.
‘I think we’re improving each day and it’s gonna be good. If we want to be at the top it’s normal that we have to fight, we have to be under control and try to win the games.’
