Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, is encouraged with the performance of midfielder, Joe Willock despite their 2-1 defeat to Sevilla.

Wenger said pairing the teenager alongside Aaron Ramsey in the central midfield is a wonderful combination and a welcome development.

“We have not seen the best of Joe Willock today because he had a heavy preparation physically and he paid a little bit for it,” Wenger told Arsenal players.

“On top of that, we didn’t have a lot of the ball so he couldn’t show what he can do going forward, but he had a very promising preparation and it’s good for him to have a start at home in front of our fans. I’m sure he’ll have a great future.”

“He needs to play regularly for the under 23s and gain a little bit more physical power. He’s only 17 and that’s very young, but he has a good football brain and analyses very weel.”
