 'Saka The New Messi' - Arsenal Fans React To Winger's MOTM Display Vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Arsenal began their 2019-2020 Europa League campaign with a 3-0 win over Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday.

There were some surprise inclusions in Unai Emery's starting XI as 18-year-old winger Bukayo Saka  was handed a spot in the team ahead of Nicolas Pépé

Saka had an eventful night during the game. His pass was met by Joe Willock whose shot went into Frankfurt's net to give the Gunners a well-deserved lead in the 38th minute.

The Nigerian star doubled the Gunners lead in the 85th minute and was on ground to assist Aubameyang's goal two minutes from time as the encounter ended 3-0 in favor of the visiting Premier League side.

Arsenal fans were impressed with the youngster during the game and they took to Twitter to commend his performance.

Here are some of their comments below:

@eGoMaNiAc_jr : ''Saka Playing Like Prime Messi''.

@NicolasPepes : ''I’m not joking when I say this. But Saka is going to be better than both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo!''

@kayb4repu : ''Saka the new Messi''.
