Denis Suarez sends message to fans after Man City defeat

Denis Suarez has issued a rallying cry to fans after making his debut for Arsenal in the Premier League loss to Manchester City.

The Spanish midfielder has joined the Gunners on loan from Barcelona until the end of the season, to make the switch permanent in the summer.

Unai Emery decided to start Denis Suarez on the bench at Etihad but brought his new signing on with 25 minutes remaining.

Writing on social media following the match, the 24-year-old said: ‘Today I returned to Manchester to make my debut in the Premier League, and I was eager and happy to start this great challenge.

‘The score wasn’t good, but this has just started. Let’s go for it, C’mon Gunners!’

Speaking after the defeat, Unai Emery said: ‘We are going to go game by game and thinking ‘win the next match’ and maybe if we win we can take the opportunity in the near future to be near the other teams and play with this motivation.

‘The difference between City and us is like this result. We need to do our work. Not a big frustration at moment, the result is the difference.

‘They showed their superiority in 90 minutes. They held their level in 90 minutes and our level in the second half was worse than the first.’
