Arsenal midfielder Dani Ceballos complained to Henrikh Mkhitaryan about Burnley’s long balls while sitting in the Emirates dugout during Saturday’s game.
The 23-year-old Spanish midfielder, on loan from Real Madrid, enjoyed a productive full debut as he assisted both goals in a 2-1 win for Unai Emery’s Gunners.

After Lucas Torreira replaced him in the 83rd minute, Ceballos sat down alongside Mkhitaryan and appeared to criticise the Clarets’ tactics.
He uttered a few choice words, eliciting a knowing grin from his team-mate, and motioned long passes with his hand.
Having opened the season with back-to-back wins, Arsenal’s next fixture is away to a Liverpool side that’s the only Premier League team to have done likewise.
