“His confidence level is amazing.” These Arsenal fans heap praise on this player

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:

  1. We need Takihero
    We’re holding out for Takihero to play on the right
    And he’s gonna be fast and he’s gonna be strong
    And he’s gonna be up for the fight

    I’ll get my coat…

  2. what caught my attention in today’s match the most was the acrobatic kick, that was impressive from him. Chambers is the only arsenal player who does sth similar to that but tomiyasu’s skill was topnotch!

  3. Tomiyasu and Tierney both with the same attitude of guts, aggression and commitment to each and every moment of their involvement.

    Added that gabriel is (as I have mentioned before hes like a Vieira in Defence) aggressive and will throw his body on the line and White is showing aggression in one on one duels I like the look of the set up.

    But for me Tomiyasu is looking a snip at £19m and more importantly looking like the profile we are adding, changing the attitude of the squad. Long may it grow…

  4. Arsenal need players of this calibre, focused ,aggressive and energetic. Our upfront should be seen with these qualities.

  5. let’s slow our roll about on the anointing him the next great RB, but there’s no doubt he played well today…our opponent today wasn’t that aggressive or expansive on his side, as they tend to take more chances on their right flanks, but he did show some decent pace and awareness with and without the ball, which bodes well…I’ll wait until we see him face someone who will make him play honest from end-line to end-line, before making any definitive assessment…that said, I’m elated with the fact that he appears to possess some skills with both feet, which really hasn’t been a commonly-held player trait in the last decade and a half at this club…I can only hope that he’s regularly deployed out wide for a series of matches so we can start to develop a Best 11

  6. I was impressed with Tomiyasu. Looked very solid and commanding defensively and when he attacked looked good too.

    It might only have been Norwich but he did all the basics to the tee. Very strong in the air too.

    You can see bursts of his quality.

    Lets see how he does against better tricky opponents.
