    Looked good today. Here's hoping he gets more first team football. I'd certainly be using him to replace Özil for the last 10 minutes of a game if we are a couple of goals up.

    I like what I saw today,
    he keeps it simple, always has an eye for movements of teammates.

    And has good weight to his balls. His pass to Walcott for the first goal was Özil-esque in its weight

    He didn't blow us away, but you need to appreciate his decision-making, technique and passing.

    He will go far, I'm certain.

    You have to know how to evaluate young players before you can appreciate them.

    Iwobi and Jeff are exciting talents.

    Edit: Nevermind, there are shinpads.

    Played like someone mature beyond his years, always great sign for the future. Hope He starts dropping skills like his uncle as he gets older

    he didn't rush anything. Fit right into our team, and kept it moving, which is more than what I can say about much senior players.

    He has a calmness about him which reminds me of Diaby.

    The senior players trusted him with ball - that's the mark of a good young player.

    Looks like Diaby the way he moves and plays.

    Decision making is great, good first touch, great athleticism. Looks like a top prospect, impressed by him yesterday.

    Should be tried out in CM. Got the calmness required for that position.

    He keeps it simple but reminds of Özil the way he's moving into space and his quick forward pass picking and the accuracy and placement of his passes were very good. Not too flashy aside from that dribble and setting up Campbell. Defenders struggle with his size and strength a little

    Very promising, he just needs game time

    Impressed by his display yesterday. He is another forward like Campbell is, has good athleticism and height, can provide players with passes, make good off the ball runs, dribble and score; signs of a well educated young player and a big talent he is.

    Promising debut. He's obviously highly regarded by Wenger and has been around the 1st team all season. To play him at No.10 showed a lot of faith in the yute. Well done lad.

    He's been playing at CM for the U21s as part of his development so it's a possibility.
