Partey stars as Atlético Madrid beat Liverpool at Anfield

Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey was at his usual best for Atlético Madrid as they rallied to beat Liverpool 3-2 in the round of 16 clash of the UEFA Champions League at Anfield on Wednesday night.

After losing the first leg, 1-0, in Spain, Liverpool finished regulation of the second leg up 1-0 to force extra time.

Georginio Wijnaldum scored the only goal in regulation on a header in the 43rd minute to force extra time, and things were looking up for the hosts when Roberto Firmino made it 2-0 in the 94 minute.

Atletico Madrid got two goals from substitute Marcos Llorente in the first period of extra time to advance 4-2 on aggregate and send the reigning champs packing in a stunning result.

Partey was one of the brightest players of the Rojiblancos once again after his impressive showing in the first leg a fortnight ago.

Many believe the Ghana international’s stock has risen up after showing his worth in the two games.

He has netted one goal in 8 Champions League games this season
