The party already was resolved, but Arthur Melo took advantage of it to explode one of the facets that more is improving this season 2019-20. The Brazilian midfield player, that was headline and played the ninety minutes this Saturday in the Camp Nou, gave the estocada final to the Eibar annotating the last goal of the meeting, the one of the 'manita', thanks to a previous good deed of Martin Braithwaite.

The Danish forward struggled by a balloon in depth and took out a shot raso and crusader that went slightly diverted by the goalkeeper of the Eibar, Dmitrovic. The spherical fell then in the boots of Arthur, the one who did not fail from the interior of the area and planted the 5-0 definite in the marker.

With the target annotated in front of the group armero, already are four the goals that adds Arthur Melo in the global of the season, three of the which have been annotated in LaLiga. Although it has lost almost the half of parties this campaign by fault of the injuries, Arthur Melo is showing a big potential goleador for exploding, and definitely is a good news for Quique Setién.

The Cantabrian technician is trying, since it landed in the bench culé, that the midfield players support the maximum possible to the forwards in the section goleador, taking into account the injuries of long length of Dembélé and Luis Suárez. For now, it seems that it is achieving it. Arturo Vidal accumulates six targets, by the four of Arthur and the two of Busquets and Of Jong. Rakitic Is the only effective of the centre of the field that still has not premièred .

Arthur Melo, a mix between Xavi and Deco

The question is that Arthur Melo shows that it can be a very dangerous player arriving from second line, and his movements remember to a mix between Xavi Hernández and Deco. We remember that both, during his respective stages in the club, were used to to mark between five and ten goals by campaign.

That is therefore the aim that has to mark Arthur in the short term, although what has to prioritise above all else is a regularity that, seemingly, is going back to purchase on the terrains of game. Good performance of the Brazilian, to the equal that the one of the rest of the team to choral level, to attain three very important points in the fight by the first place of LaLiga Santander 2019-20.
