It has undoubtedly been a frustrating start to life in England for Thomas Partey.
The Ghana international has shown his huge talents in some key performances, but his progress has been held back by a series of injuries.
But now Partey is returning to full fitness and is confident we will see the very best of him soon.
“It was a difficult moment to get used to how the team plays and I think the injuries are part of the adaptation,” he said. “I think people have their own opinion, but it depends on me and how I adapt to the situation that I’m in. It is part of the game, you never know when you’ll get injured. I do all my work, I try to make sure I’m fit to play any game.
“I had a few games, against Man United and against Wolves [where I was 100 per cent], and I was able to show what I can do. Due to less games and less training, I have to keep working and have to keep trying to get back to that level of performance.
“I think this is just the start. I’m starting to get used to how my mates play, how the Premier League goes and with time everything will be good. I will do my best and will do my work to try to make sure I will be at my best.”
