Arsenal’s explore of the United States didn’t have the desired conclusion for Robbie Burton, with the centre-field playmaker missing the decisive spot-kick against Real Madrid.
The vast majority of the rest of the explore, nevertheless, was hugely optimistic for Burton, who, in the case of many observers, went from being a relative unknown to somebody who will be on the fringes of the first-team this season.
Burton, a Wales youth international, caught the eye with his stylish passing in the earlier matchs and also worked diligently in the field of play, impressing Unai Emery.
Last season Burton prepared with the first-team occasionally, but this games represented his first involvement in a match situation.
The youthfulster certainly wasn’t fazed by facing high-profile opponents and will now hope that he can be involved in the first-team in some capacity when the real action gets underway.
It seems likely that Burton, having impressed on matches, will come into consideration for Europa League and Carabao Cup clashs, while there may even be a chance of him getting on the bench in the Premier League if extra than a few players are unfit.
The majority of his football is likely to be played with the U23s, where he could be named team leader and will be one of the most experienced members of the team.
It will certainly be worth watching to see whether Burton’s performances at U23 level, which haven’t always been consistent, will now improve as a consequence of his involvement with the first-team.
