Robin van Persie praises Dani Ceballos’ display against Burnley

Former Arsenal and Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has praised the display of midfielder Dani Ceballos during his maiden Premier League start for the Gunners. The Spain international only made a cameo appearance in the season opener but he was handed a full debut against Burnley with Granit Xhaka on the sidelines through an injury.

While he was initially pitted to feature in the number 8 role, Ceballos found himself in the number 10 position in numerous occasions during the game and he made the difference with assists for both of the goals scored by the Gunners. Speaking on BT Sport, Van Persie heaped praise on the midfielder and said that the 23-year-old was by far the best player for the north London giants.
