Dani Ceballos has promised to bring “a lot of joy” to Arsenal this season.

The Spain Under-21 international started his first Premier League game on Saturday afternoon as Arsenal welcomed Burnley to The Emirates.

Ashley Barnes cancelled out Alexandre Lacazette’s opening goal to leave the north London side facing a potential stalemate in north London.

However, Ceballos, 23, won the ball in midfield and teed up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score a brilliant winner midway through the second half.

The summer signing finished the Premier League clash with a pass completion of 90 per cent, four completed dribbles and three successful tackles.

His performance left Arsenal legend Robin van Persie and Martin Keown raving about the Real Madrid loanee during BT Sport‘s coverage of the Premier League clash.

And the Arsenal loan star Ceballos has seemingly promised that there’s more to come from the talented Spanish playmaker throughout the Premier League season.

“I really want this year to truly demonstrate the football that I have inside,” Ceballos told Sky Sports.

“I have a lot of enthusiasm for this season and to be able to give a lot of joy to this club.

“The confidence they have in me, I want to return it to them with my performances.”

The Gunners will make the trip to Anfield in their next Premier League game on Saturday evening.

Arsenal haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04 when Arsene Wenger was still in charge.

The north London side finished in fifth place last term and lost the Europa League final to Chelsea FC.
