Dani Ceballos says he will not forget his full Arsenal debut on Saturday after his man-of-the-match performance led to a 2-1 win over Burnley.
Gunners forwards Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored, but it was Ceballos who stood out in his first game at the Emirates since arriving on loan from Real Madrid, setting up both goals.
The 23-year-old midfielder was understandably pleased with his performance, and told the Arsenal website: “The most important thing in football is to win.
“The truth is that for me it has been one of the most special days of my life. I think that by starting at home with a win, and with this passion shown at the end of the match, I think it will be hard for me to forget this day.”
Ceballos’ season-long move to Arsenal came after he failed to hold down a regular spot in parent club Real Madrid’s first team since arriving from Real Betis two years ago.
