Arsenal star Thomas Partey mocks Man Utd with video on social media after Newcastle defeat

Arsenal star Thomas Partey mocks Man Utd with video on social media after Newcastle defeat

He's twisted the knife.

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has taunted Manchester United following their defeat to Newcastle.

The Gunners are currently eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table following their comprehensive 4-1 win over Leeds on Saturday.

With just nine games left of the campaign, Mikel Arteta's side are in pole position to lift the title for the first time in nearly 20 years.

Meanwhile, Manchester United suffered a 2-0 defeat to Newcastle on Sunday, putting a significant dent in their Champions League hopes.

Erik ten Hag's Red Devils dropped from third to fifth in a matter of days, as both Newcastle and Tottenham leapfrogged them on goal difference.

Partey clearly had little sympathy for United, going out to lunch to celebrate their defeat.

During his meal with Ghanaian TV personality Nana Aba Anamoah, Partey was asked to say 'hello' to Arsenal fans.

Following some joking back and forth between the two, the 29-year-old eventually said: "You are welcome, join us in celebration of United's loss" - while taking a spoonful of his dessert.

The camera then panned to Anamoah, who was left speechless by his comment.

Goals from former Gunners midfielder Joe Willock and Callum Wilson were enough to secure victory for Newcastle over Manchester United at St James' Park, as questions were raised over the Red Devils' desire.

Speaking after the game, Luke Shaw gave a damning assessment of his side's mentality, suggesting Newcastle simply "wanted it more."

"The players had a chat in the changing room after with no staff around because ultimately it's down to us as players on the pitch," said the United left-back.

"Like I said, it was nowhere near good enough and we had to speak out in front of each other and own up to it.

"I do think Newcastle are a very good side, but I don't think they won the game on quality today.

"I think they won it on passion, hunger, desire and attitude.

"They clearly had that higher motivation than us and that can't be possible. They wanted it more, and at Man United that cannot be possible."
