Dani Ceballos on playing better at Arsenal than Real Madrid

Dani Ceballos says Alexandre Lacazette's understanding of the game is critical to Arsenal's fortunes

He assisted both goals in that 2-1 win and he helped turn the game for Arsenal against Tottenham prior to the global break - which the Gunners drew 2-2 after being 2-0 down.

Speaking to the Guardian in a comprehensive interview, Ceballos said: "I'm very grateful [to hear the fans chanting my name]".

LONDON, ENGLAND - AUGUST 17: Alex Lacazette celebrates scoring for Arsenal with Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Dani Ceballos during the Premier League match between Arsenal FC and Burnley FC at Emirates Stadium on August 17, 2019 in London, United Kingdom.

"I'm just really happy to be part of this great club".

And of his own role, the seven-cap playmaker said: "The two good games I've had so far for Arsenal I never had in two years at Madrid".

"They suck the air out of you".

Premier League coaches possess had a fortnight to stew on the considerations that arose in their first four Premier League video games and come in up with solutions.

However, unfortunately for these Arsenal fans it has been some time since Ozil played some of his best football.

"We've got a very good, compact side and the three up front really make the difference".

'You can compare [Pierre Emerick] Aubameyang to the style of Cristiano [Ronaldo] when he was at Madrid in the sense that he plays close to the goal and lives for scoring, ' Ceballos advised the Every day Mail. He's very important for us, fundamental.

Ceballos believes Arsenal's front three can propel them to success, saluting the direct qualities of Nicolas Pépé and describing Alexandre Lacazette as the Gunners' best player. And Lacazette, for me, is the best player: he understands the game perfectly and, if he's 100 per cent, he's going to give us so much. "That's related to confidence but you have to be self-critical".

"I have a big margin for improvement; with experience I can".
