    Ceballos is quality. Passing, movement with the ball and not scared to tackle.

    Nketiah needs a loan, he’s 20 and he’s been held back too long. People criticising him need to look past the misses, a season playing regularly in a good league will tell us if he’s Arsenal quality.

    Nelson looks better on the left, who would have thought it!

    You think because you’re a mod it’s okay to be rude? Absolute helmet.

    Yeah. A loan with TJJ as 3rd choice is good for me. Only issue is Laca. Is he OK?

    I just don't see what he does that Guendouzi can't do. Like you sat, he was just there. No dictating play. No receiving the ball deep and getting us up the pitch. No assists or chances created for others. Ceballos has more of an obvious impact than he had all game. We need a vice captain to step up.

    :lol: Can't believe the stuff I read on here, he looks like a flop after two games off the bench. And he's nothing like chamakh.

    Far too rigid in such a crucial position. A number 6 that cannot pivot with the ball and evade a press stifles not only attacks but puts defences in trouble.

    With Xhaka there, we need someone in defence as good at passing as van Dyke who can hit balls out from the back to our wingers, and that to me is dodging the real issue.

    That four on paper in any combo has enough although I think its Torreira plus two in a 433 or in a two with 4231 now Laca is injured.

    People posting this need to open their eyes. You post that our team isn't good enough, the players aren't good enough, what do you expect that to play like? Obviously its not gonna be easy on the eye.

    Our main team with Tierney and Pepe IF we get them over the line and also with Ceballos will actually be easy on the eye. The lot that played today will never ever be easy on the eye apart from Willock/Nelson/Auba/Laca. We had nothing creative on the pitch until Ceballos came on.

    We have a few too many liabilities in the team.

    Mustafi, Xhaka, Mkhitaryan for example simply can not be relied upon to not **** up every game.

    He did receive the ball deep but did quite little with it today. Normally he at least progresses play quite well in comparison to others but Geundouzi also did well in that regard today (held on too long sometimes though) and Willock also did a good job of getting it forward aswell. Hopefully we can replace Xhaka very soon.

    I'm keen to see more of Ceballos. If Emery is smart, he doesn't play Ceballos as a 10 and uses him ahead of Xhaka instead.

    You see Ceballos coming off the bench and you get pure quality. You don’t see that with Martinelli. I’m not convinced at all.

    Xhaka is about to be named captain. He’s a guaranteed starter in that midfield, make peace with it.

    Don't forget that lovely ball Xhaka played to Nketiah against Real Madrid in the second half. That was legit class.

    Xhaka simply isn't agile enough and always panics under pressure. Ceballos should take his place.

    I will start a midfield of Ceballos, Willock and Torreira against Newcastle.

    If Torreira isn't fit, then I'll give Guendouzi a go. As for Nketiah, I just don't rate his talent.

    He has some good moments and a strong mentality, but I don't think he is technically gifted enough or explosive enough to make it here.

    Maybe he can be a squad player like Wiltord, but he will have to be clutch for that to work.
