 Arsenal's Saka Nets Stunning Goal, Chelsea's Tino Notches Assist Against League One Teams
Arsenal have been knocked out of the Checkatrade Trophy following their 2-1 loss to League One opponents Portsmouth at Fratton Park on Tuesday evening.

There were starts for youngest player of Nigerian descent to feature in the Europa League, Bukayo Saka, Tobi Omole and James Olayinka and they all went the distance apart from Omole.

The Blues led 1-0 at half-time thanks to skipper Brett Pitman's 10th-minute goal but Saka equalised for the visitors in the 66th minute.

The England U19 international cut in from the left and fired into the top corner from the edge of the box to make it 1-1 but Green put the hosts back in front with seven minutes remaining.

Elsewhere, a Chelsea side featuring the impressive Faustino Anjorin reached the last sixteen with a 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon at Stamdord Bridge.

Charlie Brown gave Chelsea the lead nine minutes before half time, then Daishawn Redan headed in from close range to double the advantage a minute after the restart after a pinpoint cross was delivered to him by Anjorin.

Midfielder Tariq Uwakwe was not in the Blues squad for this one as well as AFC Wimbledon's Nigerian captain Deji Oshilaja who picked up a knock last weekend.
