Arsenal’s final match of their United States pre-season tour had it all – goals, red cards, penalties. Amongst all of the mayhem, one of our shining young stars continued to impress as Joe Willock drew high praise from The Gunners support.

Willock has been a revelation in midfield this summer, dazzling at every single opportunity given to him. Arsenal went into half-time 2-0 up with Willock on the pitch but after the break the young 19-year-old was substituted for Nacho Monreal and everything went out the window. Unai Emery’s side let Real Madrid back into the game and just before the hour mark it was all tied up. The game went to penalties and despite Gareth Bale missing his, Zinedine Zidane’s La Liga giants were victorious on the night.

Following the overnight game, fans went to Twitter to share their thoughts on the youngster’s performance with one fan claiming he was one of the best players on the pitch whilst others simply called him a baller. One supporter even suggested that had the 19-year-old not come off, they would have won that game – also throwing in criticism at Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Others are hopeful that Willock gets his chance this coming season which was emphasised by another stating the midfielder had really made a claim for a starting spot. One supporter said the player had a lot of potential but begged fans not to slaughter him if he gets off to a bad start when the games really begin to count.
