Arsenal fans were praising young star Bukayo Saka after he contributed all three goals in the club’s 3-0 win in the Europa League.
The Gunners turned up at the Commerzbank-Arena after letting a two-goal lead slip away to Watford, however, ended up beating their German rivals quite comfortably.
Saka assisted Joe Willock as the north London giants took the lead in the first half. The England youth international then went on to score himself before he assisted Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the side’s third and final goal (via BBC).
The youngster took to Twitter to express his feelings, tweeting out: “Dream come true to score for Arsenal and to get 2 assists tops off a special night.”(Source: Twitter)
The Gunners next face Aston Villa at home, and with Alexandre Lacazette out injured until October, Saka could well feature after lighting up the Europa League.
Fans were ecstatic for the 18-year-old as they took to Twitter to praise him on his performance.
Here is a selection of tweets from Gooners:
Well done Bukayo. Hope to see you start Premier League matches soon
