"He Is The Best In The World" Arsenal Fans To Their Defender Who Impressed Again Against Brighton.

Takehiro Tomiyasu is a proper defender. In three games for Arsenal, he has not been dribbled past once. No one in the PL has been more successful in the air. There's no extravagance, on or off the pitch. He's just Tomi, here to work hard and defend harder.

Takehiro Tomiyasu had more touches (67) and made more ball recoveries (8) than any other Arsenal player against Brighton.He is yet to be dribbled past by an opponent in the Premier League this season.

The key with Tomiyasu is that he’s got the defensive instincts of a centre-back which solidifies Arsenal’s back four,but he’s also got the technical security to give Arsenal greater ball progression into the final third. He’s the ideal tactical fit for this inverted right-back role.

Arsenal’s goals conceded when using Tomiyasu-White-Gabriel-Tierney back-four:

•0 vs. Norwich (1-0 W)

•0 vs. Burnley (0-1 W)

•1 vs. Tottenham (3-1 W)

•0 vs. Brighton (0-0 D)

Ramsdale on Tomiyasu: "He loves football. He just lives & breathes football. You forget he is 22 years old"

Tomiyasu: "I am not happy with the result but I have to think positively about the one point because they controlled the game most of the time. We will take one point. I'm not happy with the result but we have to be positive"
