Arsenal have made some very impressive signings to date this summer, including former Newcastle United right-back Mathieu Debuchy.
The French international made his first start for the Gunners in Sunday's Emirates Cup match against Monaco, 24 hours after Arsene Wenger's side had demolished Benfica 5-1.
The second game did not quite go according to plan, with the French side winning 1-0 courtesy of a goal-scoring return for Radamel Falcao. But there were still positives to be taken from the game, not least the form of Debuchy and fellow new recruit Calum Chambers.
Both players were tipped to compete for the right-back role next season. But following the weekend's events it looks as though the former Southampton man has been bought more as central defensive cover, meaning Debuchy's main competition could come from impressive Spaniard Hector Bellerin.
After the match, we took to Twitter to see what fans thought of Debuchy's performance against the Ligue 1 club, and you can read a selection of what we found below:
Chambers and Debuchy have been most impressive. #Arsenal— Priyank Umraode (@Umraode9) August 3, 2014
Only problem I have with Debuchy is he gets caught out of position sometimes— Ryan Sparrock (@sparkster14) August 3, 2014
Giroud and Koscielny off, safe to say the Frenchies barring Debuchy have been less than impressive today, positive: they get some game time— Chambo & Chambo (@_AFC49) August 3, 2014
@GoonersGoons he's not set the world alight. No-one has been brilliant, but Chambers and Debuchy. Sanchez can't play well - he has no space— Parkey (@ParkeyAFC) August 3, 2014
Debuchy looks perfect for Arsenal. Shows benefit of buying within the league— Gunners Town (@GunnersTown) August 4, 2014
Chambers and Debuchy slotted in their respective roles like a glove. Both solid and commanding.— KP (@kryptogan) August 4, 2014
Debuchy hurts my head. He looks overweight, and everything tells me he's slow and clumsy.... ..... But he's not. He's solid.— The Twelfth Man (@_The12thMan) August 3, 2014
