VIDEO: Individual Highlights Of ‘New Signing’ Sebastian Perez vs Man City

By on August 12, 2013

Saturday’s impressive 3-1 win over Manchester City should be a morale-boosting victory as we gear up for the big Premier League opener against Aston Villa this weekend.

Not only did the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott continue their excellent pre-season form, the game also saw young trialist Sebastian Perez make his ‘debut’. The Colombian came on in the 67th minute and settled in quite nicely, showing composure on the ball and kept things simple.

His major contribution saw him booked for scything down Jesus Navas but it was an interesting move by Wenger to give him some game-time. I’ve read rumours online suggesting that the boss has offered to make his trial permanent but this is yet to be confirmed.

If he does move he’s highly unlikely to make an impression on the first team next year as he’ll most certainly have work permit issues, so I’d expect a loan abroad.

Here are some short highlights of his performance versus City:

    Really impressed with Perez, a squad player for me atm but he seemed to slot into the system very easily. Bienvenido al Arsenal Seb!

    Perez has a european passport of some sort I remember reading about it. I would take a punt on him he looks composed he looked over his shoulder whilst retaining the ball. That shows he has awareness and technical ability. He wasn’t afraid to showcase his skills and also put the foot in. All good attributes for a young midfielder and certainly impressed the majority.

    I’m really impressed with Perez. He looked very comfortable and very calm even with City’s player surrounding him and trying to press him. Hi one-touch pass is good too. Really suit in Arsenal typical of football playing.
