Willian has been singing Mikel Arteta’s praises but it remains to be seen if that’s enough to save him from the manager’s wrath after he slipped off to Dubai during the international break.

With the Premier League doing their best to kept their bubble intact and their multi-million pound show on the road, footballers are subject to even more stringent restrictions than us mere mortals.

Imagine Arsenal’s surprise, then, when they discovered Willian had flew to Dubai for reasons yet to be determined.

Arsenal have already lost Mohamed Elneny for a match or two after he tested positive thanks to his friend and teammate, Mohamed Salah, going to a wedding.

Speaking to FourFourTwo about Arteta’s potential, Willian said: “He’ll be a top manager, I’ve no doubt about it.

“The potential is there, as is the ambition. In a few years he’ll be considered one of the best managers in the Premier League – and the world.

“Obviously you must win trophies to be considered one of the best, and it will happen for him sooner rather than later [It’s already happened, Bill, pay attention].

“I’m impressed with the way he talks and explains his tactical thoughts – he’s quick to read the game and make adjustments when needed. It’s been fantastic to train under him so far and I’m learning a lot.”

Willian may be impressed with Arteta but it seems unlikely Arteta will be with the Brazilian.

Fans were already getting fed up with him before this. How it goes down will largely determine the ride Willian gets for the rest of the season from the fanbase.
