Arsenal won out against Benfica this evening in an explosive Europa League tie, as a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang double saw them over the line.
The Gunners seemed to be heading out thanks to a 2-2 scoreline, as Goncalves and Silva had both scored for Benfica, before Kieran Tierney got the equaliser in the 67th minute.
It was left to Aubameyang to seal the win late on, the Gabon striker getting his second of the night as Bukayo Saka once again set up the goal for the striker.
And it was the performance of Saka that got a lot of the attention from Arsenal fans on Twitter following the game. The young England star was in exceptional form, and even outshone Aubameyang and his double strike.
The social media platform was full of comments lavishing praise on Saka, who continues to demonstrate just what a fine player he is for Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side this season.
SAKA is a different kettle of fish yana 🥶🥶🥶
