Arsenal manager Arteta delighted with 'animal' Dani Ceballos

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has lauded Dani Ceballos for training like an 'animal'.

The Spaniard made his first start under Arteta in Sunday's 4-0 win over Newcastle.

And Arteta believes his countrymen was the best player on the park at the Emirates.

"Dani Ceballos is a good example," he said. "He was injured and when he started to train I didn't think he was fit enough. He completely changed his behaviour and trained like an animal.

'I thought he was the best player on the pitch."

He added: "Bukayo Saka is doing really well.

"He keeps his head down and wants to learn. He's peforming like a senior player."
