Takehiro Tomiyasu is a Japanese professional footballer who plays as a centre-back or right-back for Premier League club Arsenal and the Japan national team. He is a smart, quick centre-back, with many impressive attributes.
He played a variety of roles in Bologna’s backline last season, filling in across the backline including at left back on rare occasions. His primary role is as a right-sided defender.
Since the international break Arsenal have won three games on the bounce, conceding just once in that time. While players returning to full fitness and from suspension have helped this, there has been an underlying factor in all these performances.
The Japanese defender has won the most aerial duels, with a win rate of almost 90%. He has also won 100% of his ground duels as well and is yet to be dribbled past by an opponent player.
