Arsenal won against Benfica this evening as Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang inspired the Gunners past the Portuguese side.
Mikel Arteta’s men finally got the winning goal late on, as Aubameyang added his second of the night to win the game. The finish came thanks to great work from Saka again, who helped himself to two more assists.
Saka was in fine form all night. The England youngster showed flair, ability, and class when needed to help Arsenal put Benfica to the sword when it mattered.

Saka wasn’t the only one to be impressed by Saka. Twitter was full of comments praising him. The likes of Cesc Fabregas, among those to sing the praises of the young Gunner.
The sky really does seem the limit for Saka at the moment. And as it stands, England manager Gareth Southgate will be hard pressed to leave him out of his squad for the Euros.
TBR View: Saka outstanding, simply
Aubameyang got the goals but my word, Bukayo Saka was impressive for the Gunners. He was everywhere, and the creativity he showed in his attacking play was sensational.
Saka is going places and Arsenal are lucky to have him in the ranks. If they can keep hold of him in the coming seasons, then success could very much come the way of Mikel Arteta’s men.
