Garth Crooks was full of praise for Dani Ceballos after Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Burnley at The Emirates on Saturday.

The Spaniard has been settling into life at The Emirates after having joined the Gunners on a season-long loan deal from Real Madrid.

The 23-year-old impressed on his home debut as he notched up assists for both of Arsenal’s goals and was named as the man of the match following a sparkling performance.

Ceballos will now be hoping to convince manager Unai Emery that he is worthy of a regular spot in the Gunners first team this season.

And BBC Sport pundit Crooks was clearly impressed by what he saw from the Real Madrid loanee during Saturday’s early kick-off at The Emirates.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Crooks said: “Dani Ceballos’ involvement in a move to set up Reiss Nelson was superb. That was before that interfering, meddling, busybody called VAR poked his hi-tech nose in and ruled some wonderful work by Ceballos offside.

“This lad can play. He seems to have a touch of the Aaron Ramsey about him, albeit a little more mobile. It will be interesting when Mesut Ozil returns to see if Unai Emery will accommodate both players.

“With David Luiz in their defence, Ozil due to return once fully fit and Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang up front, the North London derby suddenly looks interesting.”

Arsenal will return to Premier League action on Saturday evening when they take on Liverpool FC at Anfield.

The north London side have won their two opening games of the season for the first time in more than 10 years as they aim to try and break back into the top four this term.

The Gunners have not won the Premier League title since 2003-04.
