So good seeing three Hale End boys starting. Think Chambers is unlucky to be dropped but they are our first choice pairing. Looking forward to seeing what Ceballos can do.

Come on!

Nelson starting as well. A little surprised about Torreira not getting game in Xhaka s absence. It will be interesting to see who is deeper along side guendouzi. Ceballos or willock.

If its Ceballos, then this is his chance to displace xhaka

Lacazette does excellently to turn and finish in a crowded penalty area

Point blank save from Leno but Tarkowski is offside anyway

Nearly a good finish by Guendouzi but Pope saves with his foot

Deflection falls to Ashley Barnes who finishes. Been let off enough times but not learnt our lesson

I could see that coming 1-1

Nelson finishes well from close range but Monreal is flagged offside.

Half time 1-1.

Frustrating as there has been a lot to like in that half. Playing out from the back has been enjoyable to watch at times, Willock has been good again and Ceballos has been excellent, but we have been slow to deal with the second ball and just didn't learn our lesson as Burnley had chance after chance.

Still not a fan of us shoehorning Lacazette and Aubameyang into the same XI. Aubameyang on the right hasn't worked well.

Nelson isnt quite ready. Half a season too early for him. Willock could stay in the team. Sensational talent.

Ceballos was brilliant but he hasn't paced himself at all and it cost us for the goal when he was too tired to make a proper tackle.

Pepe on for Nelson.

Shame for Nelson. Didn't really get involved in the game. That goal would've done him a world of good if it had counted.

Thank f.uck for that

Monreal had a shocker mate. Were was he for their goal? Dodged crosses, misplaced passes. Couldn't even stay on side to grab an assist. The armband really did him no good.

He was the best player on the pitch. Can unlock these teams that sit back with his tight control and eye for a pass. He's gonna be very useful this season.

I personally think the team was fantastic against a typical one dimensional but hard Burnley team.

We haven’t had a player of Ceballos ilk since Fabregas. He looks that good.

This is exactly what i said a few weeks back. And we haven't had a player like pepe since rosicky got injured in his second and stopped playing in the wings. A winner that has s good shot along with close control and brains.

I won't be too bothered if the next two games don't go our way.

This is team is shaping up nicely. Pity ceballos asked to remove the buy clause but i can see why he wants to go back to Madrid and replace modric/kroos
