‘Finally a good right-back’: Arsenal fans heap praise on debutant Tomiyasu following Norwich win


The Arsenal faithful have taken to social media in numbers this afternoon, to lavish praise on summer addition Takehiro Tomiyasu.

Auba on target

Mikel Arteta’s men of course returned to action a short time ago.

In the club’s first outing on the back of the international break, the Gunners welcomed Norwich City to the Emirates, for a bottom-of-the-table clash.

Arsenal headed into proceedings aware that nothing but three points would suffice on Saturday, after slipping to a trio of defeats in their first three outings of the campaign.

And, when all was said and done in North London, get the club’s first win of the season on the board is precisely what the hosts, just, managed.

A hard-fought affair, during which it looked at times as though Arsenal would never manage an opener, eventually saw the game’s telling moment arrive 20 minutes into the 2nd-half.

After a remarkable sequence of events saw Nicolas Pepe hit not one, but both posts, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was on hand to slot home Arsenal’s first Premier League goal of the campaign, sealing victory in the process:

‘What an absolutely lovely debut’

As outlined above, though, despite Auba ultimately proving the difference-maker this afternoon, it was another of the Gunners’ stars who appeared to impress the club’s supporters most.

The player in question? Takehiro Tomiyasu.

Japanese international Tomiyasu of course sealed a deadline day switch to the Emirates early last week, before being thrown in from the off by Mikel Arteta versus Norwich, in a right-back role.

And the ex-Bologna man went on to fully repay the faith of his new boss on Saturday, thoroughly impressing across a 62-minute debut:

The Arsenal faithful, in turn, have since made clear their jubilance with the early promise showcased by their new right-full, with some of the best of social media highlighted below:
