A number of Arsenal fans took to social media to applaud the performance of one of the men who featured in the midfield on Sunday as the Gunners thrashed Newcastle in the Premier League.

Following draws against Sheffield United, Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Burnley in their last four outings in the Premier League, the Gunners really needed the three points on Sunday.

After traveling to Dubai with the squad for a refreshing mid-season training and a much-needed break, Mikel Arteta decided to rotate his team a little for the clash with the Magpies.

Those changes saw Dani Ceballos make his first ever start in the Premier League under the new boss as Matteo Guendouzi dropped out of the team.

Ceballos certainly needed an emphatic performance after being left out of the starting eleven for so long and the midfielder took his chance gracefully on Sunday.

After a below-par first half from the whole team, the Spaniard put in a fine show after the break as he helped Arsenal secure a 4-0 win.
