Arsenal midfielder Dani Ceballos is determined to show new boss Mikel Arteta that he is good enough to start for the Gunners.

Ceballos, who joined on a season-long loan from Real Madrid last summer, has only played once under Arteta since injuring his hamstring in November.

The attacking midfielder featured in Arsenal’s first 11 league matches and is now determined to play a key part in the club’s pursuit of European qualification.

“Mikel will be a brilliant coach. He has learned from Pep (Guardiola), he has a philosophy of play which I think I fit perfectly,” Ceballos told Marca.

Mikel Arteta's sole league win since taking charge came against Manchester United on New Year's Day
