Dani Ceballos enjoyed an excellent full debut at the Emirates on Saturday.

The 23-year-old was named man of the match against Burnley as Arsenal made it two wins from two with a narrow victory against Burnley.

Many were quick to heap praise on the creative midfielder following an impressive display, including BBC pundit Garth Crooks.

And Crooks, cited by Caught Offside, compared the midfielder to former Arsenal man Aaron Ramsey.

Dani Ceballos’ involvement in a move to set up Reiss Nelson was superb. That was before that interfering, meddling, busybody called VAR poked his hi-tech nose in and ruled some wonderful work by Ceballos offside.

This lad can play. He seems to have a touch of the Aaron Ramsey about him, albeit a little more mobile.

Crooks then went on to question whether or not the midfielder could turn out in the same side as Mesut Ozil.

It will be interesting when Mesut Ozil returns to see if Unai Emery will accommodate both players.

With Ozil now back in and around the first-team fold following recent events, it’ll certainly be interesting to see whether or not Unai Emery decides to use both in the same starting line up.

The pair have similar attacking qualities. They both demand the ball on a regular basis, make good decisions and have an incredible passing range, however, Ceballos has a much better work rate.

Emery looks set to use both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette when available, and record signing Nicolas Pepe will surely be a regular in the coming weeks.

This would leave just three midfield places available, so playing both Ozil and Ceballos in the same side appears to be unlikely.

More defensive-minded midfielders, Matteo Guendouzi and Joe Willock, have impressed in the early stages of the campaign, leaving Lucas Torreira to make do with a place on the bench.

Emery would more than likely be afraid to run the risk of playing the two attack-minded midfielders together in behind the formidable front three, so if Ceballos continues his impressive form, Ozil could find it extremely difficult to break back into Emery’s plans.

Should Emery play both Ceballos and Ozil together?

Yes

No
