The standout performer on the night was obviously Thomas Partey, Arsenal’s new signing and midfield maestro.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said there is more to come from "fantastic" Thomas Partey after the midfielder's superb full debut in the 2-1 Europa League win at Rapid Vienna.

David Luiz and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored two goals in five second-half minutes after a Bernd Leno mistake had gifted Taxiarchis Fountas the opener to ensure the Gunners began Group B with a victory.

It was only Partey's second appearance in an Arsenal shirt after a late cameo in the 1-0 defeat by Manchester City in the Premier League at the weekend, and Arteta is excited by what is to come from the Ghana international.
The Ghanaian signed for the Gunners on transfer deadline day as, after a summer of haggling, they paid his release clause to bring him to North London. His small cameo against Manchester City was inconsequential, this game was to be his proper unveiling.

And what an unveiling it was!

The Ghanaian strutted across the pitch in Austria, looking easily and effortlessly better than everyone else out there. He passed the ball like Pirlo, he ran and tackled like Kanté, he even dribbled like Dembélé.
