Torreira is too limited and too lightweight and does not progress the ball that much either.
We don't want someone to progress the ball. We need a holding midfielder to protect the two CBs.
Given how high up we play, having a mobile defensive midfielder helps.
Ceballos - The MOTM in my opinion just ahead of Martinelli. Everything he does oozes class, so skillful, clever flicks, back heels, turning opposition inside out, making exceptional through balls, intercepting, tackling, tracking back and being involved in everything.
Class player, would've fitted in perfectly during the Wengerball era.
CM is his position.
Superb. Ran the show. Want to see him in a midfield with Guendouzi. Genuinely believe those pair can dominate a game between them.
Really nice to see him get a goal. We're gonna need this guy to start delivering.
Can't believe we have not seen a team of guen/willock/balloz yet.
Who holds his position to defend in that midfield? Unless we go with a diamond or a 3-5-2, which isn't necessarily too bad for certain games to be honest.
Everyone in that team defends and attacks. Not sure Xhakas strength is defensive work.
Not a fan of Xhaka lately, no it isn't, but his positioning is very conservative and that does have some benefits in this team.
Don't get me wrong - I'm just wondering. Overall I would agree with you, even two weeks ago, that those 3 are our best CMs right now. That's despite some bad showing from Ceballos.
I think/hope this is the regular Dani C performance we’ll be getting by the end of the season but in the PL.
Will be dropped for xhaka obviously.
Really good game today, and I think he will be a really good player in the future. He has great technique, vision and intelligence, but he just takes way too many touches. It seems like he’s obsessed with tricking/turning his opponent when he has the ball. You can do that some times to be unpredictable, but he does it too much which just results in slowing our game down. Often its better to play it simple. Ramsey and Diaby had the same problem in particular when they were young, and I’m sure Ceballos with time will find the right balance. But then he will probably not be an Arsenal player.
We played them together against Burnley earlier this season
I hope from now on we start him and give him a run of games to settle in and get more confidence.
quality is obviously there we should trust him
At this point, he is not doing enough. We may have much better options in the summer.
Interesting, your view is quite out of sync with others above, and I don't have you down as an 'out-there' commenter. Haven't had time to watch a recording of the match with proper attention.
he hasn't even started 3 games and in a row, has been played out of position and our midfield has been a mess so far
The closer he is to our box, the easier it is for him to give away penalties.
Sound reasoning bro
