Central Midfield

GRANIT XHAKA. 6.8. Quiet, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. He controlled possession, he picked his passes, he defended his area. Gained more relevance later in the match, in a good way. He managed that midfield like a pro.. CM. Arsenal

7.0. Had his swagger from the off, you could tell the confidence was bubbling. He was all over the pitch. Made me nervous on a couple of occasions, dribbling around too close to our goal box, but it didn’t lead to anything. Defended better than he retained possession later on. It was hit and miss for Ceballos. Definitely not like we saw against Norwich, but far from the irrelevance we’ve seen too often as well.. CM. Arsenal. DANI CEBALLOS
