Last year, we predicted that Bukayo Saka was going to be Arsenal’s next big star, and he is already proving us right. He was included in the squad for Arsenal’s first Europa League game this season, and he impressed so much that he made the first ‘Team of the Week‘ for the tournament.

The game we’re talking about happened yesterday at the Commerzbank-Arena in Germany. Arsenal completely dominated Eintracht Frankfurt, defeating them 3-0, and all that was thanks to Saka’s involvement.

The 18-year-old assisted the first goal in the 38th minute — a hint that he was just getting started. He went on to score the second goal in the 85th minute and, as if that wasn’t enough, he bagged a second assist that led to the third goal two minutes later.

By scoring the goal, which is his first on the senior team, the British-Nigerian has become the youngest player to score for Arsenal in the Europa League/Champions League since 2008. He was instantly crowned ‘Man of the Match’ at the end of the encounter.
