'Saka Is Genuinely What Chelsea Fans Think CHO Is' - Fans Hail Arsenal Creator After Goal & AssistPublished: December 12, 2019
Arsenal finished as Europa League Group F winners thanks to the performance of their Nigerian youngster Bukayo Saka in the late rally at the Stade Maurice Dufrasne on Thursday evening.
The teenager was unarguably the best Arsenal player offensively in the encounter, scoring and providing an assist for teammate Alexandre Lacazette.
He whipped in a brilliant cross into the box to pick out the Frenchman in the 78th minute before he drilled low into the bottom right corner for 2-2 nine minutes from time.
Thus, he took his contribution in the final third to eight for the season (two goals, six assists), and plaudits poured in for the winger on Twitter.
We have picked the best of the tweets below,
@temitayogoodluc : Bukayo *Saka* really amazed me tonight. His performance was exceptional. Kudos to him
@PattrickTimmons1: Bukayo Saka, the 18-year old who was written off by some fans following a sub-par 12 minute cameo at Carrow Road providing an inch perfect assist before levelling the score this evening. The potential is clear to see & don't let one sup-par display convince you otherwise.
@sidramatics : That was a Bukayo Saka masterclass...Great talent!
@jamesbenge: Saka and Smith Rowe have been really, really special tonight.
@markgoldbridge: That Saka is something special! Cracking goal!
@TheFalseNein: Saka has been absolutely unreal. Wonder if he can fill in at LB in the league while Tierney's out.
@GurjitAFC: In Saka & Martinelli, we have a couple of superstars in the making.
@buntingfootball: Positives and negatives to take for Ljungberg, good character and spirit to fight back and draw. Defensively again conceding two so that will undoubtedly frustrate him. Saka really impressive once again and Martinelli made a big difference gave the Gunners a focal point.
@Baltexxx: This cross from Saka is brilliant! The type David Beckham dished out week-in week-out at the height of his prowess. A cross so good, all it needed was a head to land on & it's a goal... 😅
@marco_gooner: MOTM performance from Bukayo Saka tonight. His crossing was on point especially in the 2nd half with that beautiful one for Laca's goal. He was drawing fouls at crucial moments and was always ready to receive the ball in good positions. He was fantastic tonight.
@KelechiAFC: Big up my bro @BukayoSaka87 for his 5 star performance today. Man rescued Arsenal big time 👏🏾.We are through to the next round. Congrats guys 👏🏾. The only way is up 👊🏾🙌🏾.
@Sean_AFC: Saka is genuinely what Chelsea fans think CHO is
@DareToWenger: We've got a star in Saka.His ability to beat players and final ball really impressive for a youngster.Also seems comfortable using both his feet. Ljungberg is developing him well.Really great to have him and Martinelli.
@matt_AFC_: Excellent football all round. But that link up between Saka and Martinelli was excellent 🙌. Saka now has the most assists in the Arsenal squad this season. Special Talent.
