Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says they’ve waited to see Thomas Partey score a long-range goal in the Premier League after his stunner against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

The 29-year-old, who has a reputation of scoring outrageous goals from distance, had scored two headers for Arsenal in the Premier League last season.

However, Partey finally got a trade mark strike on Saturday lunchtime. He produced a spectacular first-time finish into the top corner to break the deadlock after 20 minutes.

The former Atletico Madrid man was an imposing figure as Arsenal ran out 3-1 victors, and Arteta expressed his delight at witnessing Partey end his open-play hoodoo.

“We have been waiting for that one! For what he has been through I am so happy for him,” the Gunners boss told BT Sport after the game.
