Arsenal & Dani Ceballos
When Arsenal signed Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid on a season-long loan, some had doubts.
One of the key criticisms of the deal is that Arsenal failed to secure a purchase option for the Spanish midfielder.
Thus, some have suggested that if Ceballos doesn’t perform early on for the Gunners, Unai Emery could easily push him to one side.
As fans wait to see how the Ceballos deal develops over the fullness of time, the Spaniard put in a cracking performance on Saturday against Burnley.
Dani Ceballos celebrates ‘unforgettable’ match
After the game, Dani Ceballos revealed the following to Arsenal’s website:
For me it is a great pride.
I really want this year to truly demonstrate the football that I have inside.
I have a lot of enthusiasm for this season and to be able to give a lot of joy to these people.
The confidence they have in me, I want to return it to them with my performances.
The truth is that for me it has been one of the most special days of my life.
I think that starting at home by winning, and with this passion at the end of the match, I think it will be hard to forget this day for me.
Arsenal 2 – Burnley 1
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the winner for Arsenal in the second-half.
Prior to the break, Ashley Barnes continued his superb scoring form for Burnley, cancelling out Alexandre Lacazette’s 13th-minute opener.
