Arsenal may have lost their Emirates Cup final 2-1 at home to Lyon on Sunday but fans were treated to a strong 20-minute stint by new signing Dani Ceballos.
Supporters had been looking forward to the midfielder taking the field for Arsenal ever since his loan deal was announced last week.
Ceballos wasn’t a part of Zinedine Zidane’s first-team plans this season for Real Madrid and subsequently became available, with Arsenal pouncing to confirm the loan deal.
The 22-year-old has arrived at the Emirates with plenty of pedigree, having played 56 times for Real, while he has featured in six games at a senior international level for Spain.
That quality shone through in his first match as he showed flashes of brilliance in his short 20-minute spell which had fans in awe.
Here is some of the best reaction below.
I Willock and Nelson are ready for the 1st team.
Eddie on the other hand needs to go out on (a productive) loan.
We seriously need a good C.B
Ceballos looks a (temporary) steal.#EmiratesCup
