Bukayo Saka has hit the headlines after shining in Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankurt away from home, with his first senior goal and two assists and he posted on Twitter after the match.
Saka, 18, was pivotal throughout the match and helped Arsenal break the deadlock with a perfectly weighted pass to fellow academy product Joe Willock – and the impressive Englishman found the net via a deflection.
Frankfurt went down to 10 men, and in just his second start for the Gunners, Saka curled home a stunning effort from 25 yards to double the Gunners lead. He was not finished, tackling a Frankfurt player before feeding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Saka was superb throguhout the 90 minutes in a night that belonged to young English talent, as Mason Greenwood scored for Manchester United. England Under-19 international Saka posted on Twitter after the match.

The plaudits continued to roll in for Saka who looked like a player that had been playing at this level for years. Calm, composed, but lethal in the final third, his performance came against a side that reached the semi-finals of the Europa League last term.
Following his assist for Aubameyang, the Gabonese striker applauded Saka on Twitter after the match while Gunners legend Ian Wright took to Instagram to heap praise on Arsenal’s newest star.
