Gabriel Martinelli replaced Saka and doubled Arsenal’s lead with a superb volley shortly after coming on.

After the game, Saka took to Instagram with a picture of his goal celebration and the caption “perfect way to start the weekend”.

Saka received praise from plenty of fans as well as some peers, including the Leeds talent:

Greenwood is one of the brightest youngsters at Leeds, having joined the Whites from Arsenal in 2020.

The Leeds forward played alongside Saka at Hale End and is now making a name for himself at Elland Road.

Greenwood has already made two senior appearances for Leeds under Marcelo Bielsa and looks set for a bright future at the club.
