Arsenal fans were lauding Bukayo Saka after the youngster created the only goal of the game in the Europa League win over Olympiacos.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang received the ball in the Greek outfit’s final-third before playing the ball down the left flank for the England youth international. The £11.7m-rated, as per Transfermarkt, 18-year-old then crossed the ball deliciously for Alexandre Lacazette, who tapped home a crucial away goal (via BBC).
One fan claimed he showed ‘composure’.
Saka absolute baller, oozes composure on the ball ⚽️🔥#AFC

It means the academy product now has eight assists so far this season, which leaves him clear of second-placed Nicolas Pepe, who has seven. However, another attacking contribution could make the contract negotiations between the two parties even more tricky with Saka having drawn interest from Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich. Fans were left lavishing the player with praise after he notched up another assist as they took to Twitter to react, with the majority below calling for him to be handed a new deal. With that in mind, here are some of the replies:
