Read ARsenal’s verdict
The defender was very solid on his return to action with Arsenal.
Despite making a small error for the Burnley goal, he was very robust and strong at the back.
His long balls certainly were different and could be a good addition to the Arsenal gameplan.
It will be interesting to see how he does going forward.
