The Gunners survived a scare to get through to the round of 16 after Benfica had taken surprisingly in the first half. The Premier League side did well to come back from 2-1 down to win the game late on in the second half.
Midfielder Bukayo Saka produced a sensational display for the Premier League side and he managed to create two important chances for his teammates including the winning goal from Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
The youngster has been in outstanding form for Arsenal this season and he seems to be improving every week.
There is no doubt that Saka is one of the most talented players in the Premier League right now and it will be interesting to see if he can continue to develop and establish himself as a world-class player in the coming years.
Former Arsenal stars Cesc Fabregas and Bacary Sagna were left in awe of the young Englishman’s performance tonight and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the player.
Arsenal have a reputation of producing elite talents through their Academy over the years and Saka seems like the next big thing for the Gunners.
The youngster has managed to bail Arsenal out a number of times already this season and they would have struggled to get through to the next round without his performance tonight.
