Takehiro Tomiyasu made his Arsenal debut in their 1-0 win over Norwich City in the Premier League earlier today.
The Gunners needed to win the game and Mikel Arteta felt he needed a different lineup to the previous ones that have underperformed for much of the Premier League so far.
The game today saw the likes of Ben White Gabriel Magalhaes and Ainsley Maitland-Niles starting.
It wasn’t the best of matches, but Arsenal came out on top and Tomiyasu was in decent form on his debut.
The Japanese full-back has been signed to help Arsenal solve a major problem spot at the club.
The last time they had a decent right-back was when Hector Bellerin just broke into the team.
They have sent the Spaniard out on loan to Real Betis and will hope that Tomiyasu proves to be a good buy for them.
Football London’s Chris Wheatley tweeted some impressive stats from his first match and impressed Arsenal fans responded. Here are some reactions:
He has been great. His confidence level is amazing.
