    We do. But they're still way too young. Azeez and Patino are good prospects.

    Willock is very talented, just hasn't adjusted 2 first-team footie yet.

    I would like to see him swap with Guendouzi and play in a deeper role. His work rate and fitness/athleticism is more suited to being a b2b midfielder than a 10. Guendouzi needs to work on his defensive game and so would be better playing higher up the pitch. I wonder if the coaches have reservations about his passing.

    Agreed. He’s very comfortable on the ball and his physical stature gives him the ability to win duels without giving away fouls.

    His passing range is actually one of his greatest strengths. I haven’t seen an Arsenal midfielder put in a better passing game this season than he did at the Nou Camp.

    He needs a proper loan at a team where he plays every game.

    I can't believe that Douzi in his **** form is ahead of him, there's no way anyone can give us logical explanation on this issue

    I agree, I've said before that Willock is the one player we have who could in time fill Ramsey's shoes. Great energy and he scores goals, he should have added another yesterday but failed to hit the target, he needs to be calmer because he gets into the positions to score.

    Really good performance from Willock today. Involved with both goals with a nice pre-assist. He offers us running power, and intelligent movement and good physique. He may never have Özil’s final pass or decision making but he has better qualities for pressing football imo. However, I’m just hoping he manages to translate this into PL performances because that’s where I feel he struggles but I believe with a competent manager at the helm he will blossom sooner rather than later.

    Both willock and guendoozi were so out of form before this game, and both had blinders today. Hopefully that's a turning point for both of them heading into the tail end of the season

    Excellent game. Great shielding and ball carrying, and much cleverer passing. Must keep this up when he can.

    Willock's ability to drive forward with the ball is what sets him apart, I really hope that he will get more game time after this performance.

    The way he eats up the ground with those long strides is just beautiful to watch. Much better from him tonight, you just know when it clicks with Willock he’ll be a complete midfielder.

    Modern CM. He’s the one I pin my hopes on the most because he has what we sorely lack in midfield.

    Arteta is really getting a tune out of our young players. Nice to see.

    Get ready to pin your hopes on Azeez soon. He's the real deal.

    This is the Willock from early on the season that had me more excited than any other Hale End youngster.

    He is so much a Wengerball player!

    Sometimes a bit of Rosicky in him, sometimes a bit of Nasri. Though both Nasri and Rosicky are levels ahead at this moment.

    I agree. His capacity to physically dominate his opponents and his ability to pass first time with either foot is something we desperately lack.

    He’s ballsy and determined. Deserves more opportunities.
