Arsenal faced Burnley at the Emirates in their first home game of the season winning by 2-1 thanks to an Aubameyang winner. The Gunners were by parts the best team but struggled to cope with their visitors on occasions.
However, Burnley’s equalizer was due to him switching off in defence which is the risk he carries anytime he plays.
Despite this, he had a solid debut as he and Sokratis did a good job marshaling the Burley front two of Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood.
Ceballos meanwhile was a different beast as he endeared himself to Arsenal fans with a display that showed grit, creativity, and skill. The Spanish midfielder is a blend of different players; he has the work-rate of Aaron Ramsey, the close control of Cazorla and the calming influence of MikelArteta.
The 22-year-old was everywhere and set up the first goal from a corner kick as Lacazette scored a trademark goal from an impossible angle. Ceballos continued in the second half as he harried the opposing defenders and displayed that ability to hold onto the ball.
The winner by Aubameyang showcased this ability, after losing the ball Caballos was able to win the ball back creating the assist for the Gabon international to side foot home from distance.
Nicolas Pepe came on in the second half and showed some promise with some nice dribbles and burst of pace. The club-record signing was denied a chance to score a debut goal by Burnley stopper Nick Pope who put up an excellent display in goal. Arsenal fans left the game, knowing that a new hero is in town named Ceballos.
