A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Dani Ceballos’s performance as the Gunners beat Sheffield United on Sunday.
Mikel Arteta’s side secured their first win in any competition since last month’s North London derby. Alexandre Lacazette and Gabriel Martinelli scored either side of the break for the visitors at Bramall Lane. Lacazette then scored a late third.
The first goal came after an outstanding move from Arsenal, which culminated in Ceballos finding Lacazette with a delicious touch as the Frenchman broke into the box.
And that moment of class seemed to sum up Ceballos’s evening against the Blades. The Spaniard was superb alongside Thomas Partey in the middle of the park.
It has not been an easy time for Ceballos in recent months. He has come in for criticism for a number of mistakes that have cost Arteta’s men at times.
However, he produced a much better performance at the weekend.
Of course, Arsenal fans will be wary of getting carried away. Paul Heckingbottom’s men could be relegated next weekend.
But it was a reminder of the form Ceballos showed towards the end of last season. And if Sunday can be used as a turning point, the 24-year-old could make a real impact in the remaining weeks of the season.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Arsenal fans made of Ceballos’s performance…
Can’t believe I’m saying this but Ceballos MOTM

Great motm performance by Dani Ceballos tonight, but can’t help wondering why it’s taken so long to come this season. Hugely talented player, but until tonight he’s generally been poor this season. #SHUARS

Ceballos has been superb today. From the start of the game he’s shown so much hunger to put tackles in, to produce some silky passes going forward and defensively I think he’s been solid. Very proud of his perfomance 👏

Ceballos has been energetic today. He’s been my MOTM.

Laca’s been clinical tonight. More of this on Thursday please. Martinelli has to start if fit, this version of Ceballos a joy to watch too. Finally a decent performance on a Sunday night 🙌
