Martin Keown impressed with 'special Arsenal player'
Arsenal legend Martin Keown has been impressed with the performances of midfielder Dani Ceballos since joining the club from Real Madrid on a season-long loan.
The Spain international has appeared in each of the opening four league games but only two of those against Burnley and Liverpool have been from the starting lineup.
In the recent north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur, Ceballos provided a lively display after coming off the bench and Keown believes that the Gunners have a special player in their ranks.
“Dani Ceballos. His home debut against Burnley was one of the best I’ve seen in an Arsenal shirt. I love his willingness to get on the ball and couldn’t work out why he was benched against Spurs. He seems a special player," he was quoted by The Mirror.
Ceballos has yet to find the consistency in terms of the performances but the recent displays against Burnley and Spurs should enhance his prospects of commanding a regular starting role.
Arsenal, who are currently fifth on the league table, are set to face Watford on the road following the international break. Ceballos should fancy starting that game after his impressive cameo against Spurs.
