The midfielder - on loan from Real Madrid - put in a sensational performance, running the show for Arsenal, having 97 touches - more than any of his team-mates.
3 - Dani Ceballos is just the third Arsenal player to register 2+ assists on his first Premier League start for the Gunners after Ray Parlour and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Impression. pic.twitter.com/S15jdjRCbL— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) August 17, 2019
Ceballos also attempted 70 passes and created four chances and became the third Arsenal player to register two assists on his first Premier League start.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan, against Everton in 2018, and Ray Parlour had previously achieved that feat.
It was some way to make an impression for Ceballos, who has struggled to cement his place at Madrid.
