While Bukayo Saka scored the decisive goal in their 1-0 win at Aston Villa at the weekend, Shearer was just as impressed by the "strength and poise" of Partey that allowed him to dominate the midfield.
Indeed, Shearer has named Partey, Saka and two more Arsenal players in his Matchweek 30 Team of the Week.

Ben White (ARS)
"Solid at the back as Arsenal held out for a vital clean sheet in their push for the top four."
Thomas Partey (ARS)

"After a tough first half, Marsch’s Leeds came out firing in the second to produce a brilliant comeback victory."
