Arsenal need a playmaker like eriksen . Neither ceballos or micki can change the game— saam (@Alli_COYS) August 11, 2019
Unless Pepe is Mbappe levels I don’t see how Arsenal are any better. Ceballos won’t be Ramsey. Luiz kochielny like for like and doubt Tierney will make that much difference. And they also lost Welbeck and Cech— TAS (@coys100) August 11, 2019
Ceballos is so bad and you talk about ndombele smh— COYS (@KeonSimmons6) August 11, 2019
Ceballos showed his class that was evident at Real Madrid 2 years ago and this year’s euros. He won’t be losing the ball as much as the others and will command the midfield. Good signs. #COYG— Siddharth Khurana (@iamsidkhurana) August 11, 2019
Great result. Very good 2nd half. Kudos to Auba, AMN, Guendouzi and Willockalso good. And our CBs did well – Chambers and Sokratis were very solid. Ceballos looked very good too once he got into the game. Onto Burnley at home #COYG— WorldwideArsenal™ (@WorldwideAFC) August 11, 2019
Opening game of the season & we kick it off with a WIN! #COYG— The Northampton Gooner (@1RealArsenalFan) August 11, 2019
Few key points:
– Auba is a beast in front of goal!
– Bellerin needed at RB
– Chambers looked solid & calm
– Guendouzi, Xhaka & Ceballos midfield looks good
– Nelson & Willock will be heavily involved this season
Good result. Newcastle away can be tricky. Good minutes for Nelson and Willock, Pepe will take a few weeks to get match sharpe, Ceballos neat and tidy, Auba deadly as always and a clean sheet. Happy Arsenal fan today #Arsenal #NEWARS #COYG— Sam Nundy (@NundySam) August 11, 2019
• Ceballos looking extremely smooth— livia megan coldwell (@livcoldwell_) August 11, 2019
• Martinelli proving to be a great young signing, lots of energy
• Chambers X Sokratis partnership was good
AMN was great both pushing forwards and pulling back
Auba is one of the best in the league
Very important clean sheet, COYG
