Partey vs Essien: Twitter Compares Two Great Defensive Midfielders

Thomas Partey and Michael Essien

Football fans on Twitter are at it again with player comparisons. This time they are comparing two of Ghana’s greatest midfielders; Chelsea legend Michael Essien and Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey.

We don’t know who or what triggered this conversation, but the comments on this issue are very interesting.

Both players are defensive midfielders and they are considered among the best in the world.

Most of the tweets we found are in support of Essien and many are of the view that it is wrong to compare Partey to Essien. They believe Essien is way ahead and Partey is yet to get to Essien’s level. Of achievement.

Below are some of the tweets:
