Ghana international Thomas Partey has continued his stunning run of form for club side Atletico Madrid, with the 24-year-old proving his versatility in a 5-0 walloping of Levante this past weekend.
Atleti remain unbeaten in this season’s Spanish La Liga, with Partey one of their outstanding players thus far.
The midfielder-come-fullback, held his own at right-back in the club’s 2-0 win over Roma in the UEFA Champions League before starring in the same position in league success on Saturday.
Having added goals to his game in a more advanced role in midfield, Partey has since proven his worth at fullback and surely if needed – he will play as a striker too!

The run of form comes as just reward for Partey who struggled for game time in the Spanish capital leading up to the current campaign.
In total, the former Mallorca and Almeria man has played 18 games this season across all competitions, scoring four goals.
Atletico return to action this evening in the Copa del Rey with a clash against Elche.
