Hello football lovers, I would love us to settle this argument of who the better defensive midfielder is between Arsenal’s Thomas Partey and Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.
The both players have made a very impressive impact in both their club and national teams. Having great influence and creativity at the middle of the park whenever they play.
While Thomas Partey Plays for the Ghanaian national team, Paul Pogba was among the players who won the FIFA World Cup with the French national team in 2018.
Most Arsenal fans feel Partey is the better of the two, whereas full-blood Manchester United fans believe they have the better footballer in Paul Pogba.
Most fans feel Pogba is a better player, after he played a vital role in the French team that won the world cup in 2018. However, Partey had established himself as one of the best players in Atletico Madrid before joining Arsenal this season.
However before we make our decisions, I would like to take us through an overall statistics of their performance for the last four seasons. Let’s check them out.
From these statistics it is very clear that Paul Pogba has been a better defensive midfielder than Thomas Partey.
