Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, has singled out Dani Ceballos and Cedric Soares for praise following his side’s Premier League 4-0 victory against Norwich City on Wednesday night.
According to Arteta, Ceballos gave the Gunners continuity to play without the ball, while Cedric brought a lot of positivity in his team.
Arsenal defeated Norwich at the Emirates Stadium, thanks to goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (2), Granit Xhaka (1), and Cedric Soares (1).
“I really like Dani. He has a big personality to play and give us the continuity to play without the ball too. He’s improved so much,” Arteta was quoted by Football London as saying at his post-match press conference.
He added: “I’m so happy for the boy [Cedric]. He’s brought a lot of positivity even with the difficulties he’s had.”
Arsenal’s next match is against Wolves on Saturday.
In another news, Arsenal’s sporting director, Edu, has given reasons why the club has not gotten rid of David Luiz.
There have been calls for the Gunners not to keep Luiz, following a disastrous cameo in the 3-0 defeat at Manchester City last Wednesday.
The Brazilian came off the bench to replace the injured Pablo Mari and gave away the first two goals. Luiz also conceded a penalty before he was sent off.
After the game, fans and pundits suggested it would be the last time he would appear in the red and white. However, Arsenal has decided to extend his deal by another year.
On why the club extended Luiz’s contract, Edu told the official website: “I am really happy that we will have these players in our squad for the future.
“They have been part of the long-term technical plan Mikel and I have developed. They bring the right balance to our squad.
“David [Luiz] is a really important player for us.
“He has played most of our matches this season and has been important for the team. His passing, his communication with the team on and off the pitch. He helps everyone.”
