Some Arsenal fans on social media have been raving over the performance of Dani Ceballos in their 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on Thursday evening.

Gunners fans didn’t have too much to shout about as the north London outfit laboured to a goalless draw against a Palace side that have struggled at times this season.

The Spaniard has often been criticised this season, but against Palace he showed exactly why he’s on the books at Real Madrid.

Indeed, Ceballos barely put a foot wrong, he had a pass accuracy of 92.5 per cent, while all eight of his attempts at long passes were on the money.

Arsenal are reportedly in the market for a new creative midfielder this summer, but perhaps all they need is for Ceballos to play like this every week.

Here’s what the Arsenal fanbase have been saying about the midfielder on social media…
