Unai Emery has revealed how he sees Dani Ceballos fit into his team after the Spaniard put in a man of the match performance in the 2-1 win over Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday.
The 23 year old was outstanding, providing the corner from which Alexandre Lacazette scored, and winning the ball back high up the pitch from which Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang drove on and got the winner.
Speaking afterwards, the Arsenal boss talked about where he sees the on-loan Real Madrid man playing throughout the new campaign.
“With him it’s about using his quality in the best position,” he said. “I spoke with him before he came here, it’s to play as a number 8 and a number 10.
“Today he started like a 10 but also changed with Willock in the 8 position. It’s where he can feel better on the pitch.”
Emery was also impressed with Joe Willock who started his first ever Premier League game at the Emirates.
“Willock I think played very well,” said Emery.
“We can also say to the young players that they have the chance to play and need to make this step. He did.”
