Each match, each minute they can show their performance like today.

It’s another chance for them to show us how they can respond, but today, for example, is very positive.’AdvertisementAdvertisementMore: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?
