Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has raved about Fabio Vieira on the club’s official website for his performance against Brentford in the London derby at the weekend.
The Gunners got the better of Brentford 3-0 away from home at the Brentford Community Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday.
Attacking midfielder Vieira was among the goalscorers.
Arteta told Arsenal’s official website about Vieira: “I think he’s having a good progression.
“Obviously he missed the whole of pre-season due to injury, that was really unlucky.
“But we know his talent, the reasons why we signed him and what he can bring to the team.
“To do it against Brentford, at this ground, on his debut, is a different story. He showed again his character and his qualities.”
Arsenal are at the top of the Premier League table at the moment with 18 points from seven matches, a point ahead of defending champions Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur, who are second and third respectively at the moment.
The Gunners will return to action on October 1 when they take on Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League.
Arsenal can be backed at 18/1 on Betfair to win the North London derby against Tottenham 3-0.
