Unai Emery reveals the two positions Ceballos can play at Arsenal

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed he was impressed by Dani Ceballos' performance on Saturday evening, as his side beat Burnely 2-1 at the Emirates. 

The 22-year-old signed on loan from Real Madrid in the recently shut Summer transfer window, and was impressive in his full debut in front of the home fans.

The youngster grabbed both assists as Lacazette and Aubameyang scored to give them a comfortable win, and was deservedly handed the man-of-the-match.  

His manager has now revealed that the midfielder can be utilized in two positions; as a number 10 and at times as a number 8. 

"[We want] to use his quality in the best position in our team," he said.

"I spoke with him before coming here, it’s to play as an eight and as a No. 10. He started like a 10 but changed with Willock. He can feel better on the pitch," 

The midfielder was equally impressed by his performance, saying it was 'one of the best days' in his career. 

"Well, the truth is that for me it has been one of the most special days of my life," said Ceballos.

"I think that starting at home by winning & with this passion at the end of the match, I think it will be hard to forget this day for me," 

Arsenal will next play Liverpool in a top-of-the-table clash at the Anfield.
