Thomas Partey scores in Atletico Madrid's win over Las Palmas

Ghanaian international Thomas Partey netted his first goal of 2018 to earn Atletico Madrid a convincing 3-0 victory Las Palmas in the Spanish top flight on Sunday.

After three games without a win, Atletico needed a win to get their campaign back on track and they got it at home with Partey firing a superb effort from close range.

Griezmann made it 1-0 in the 61st minute as Las Palmas were caught on the counter, and they were failed to learn their lesson from that goal.

A stray pass allowed Atletico to again break quickly, and the move was wonderfully finished off by Torres for only his second league goal of the campaign and the 600th Atleti goal under Simeone in all competitions.

Thomas Partey added late gloss to the scoreline. Thomas scored from a Yannick Carrasco assist.

The Ghana international is enjoying his best season as an Atletico player, having scored five goals.
