Mikel Arteta appreciates the qualities of Fabio Vieira, as he reveals the best position for the former Porto player.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has revealed the best position for his new signing Fabio Vieira after their victory against Brentford.

The former Porto midfielder made an impact in the Premier League game against the bees, scoring in the early minute of the second half.

Speaking about his preferred position after the game Mikel Arteta said: “That’s something that still needs to be decided. In those two attacking midfield positions, for sure.

“He’s played off the side as well, so it’s more about the relations he has in the unit and on his side, and where he is more comfortable. But the position he played today fits him really well.”

Vieira missed the whole of preseason for Arsenal due to injury and alos have missed vital games in the Premier League.

Speaking about the midfielder’s qualities Arteta added: “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.

“He is like this, he’s a creative player. He needs to play with his gut feeling and his instinct. That’s what he needs to do and we need to create as many scenarios for him as possible to put his talent to the service of the team.

“What I like as well is the way he competes, and the way he went about the ugly part of the game really impressed me.”
