Bukayo Saka was the star man for Arsenal as they beat Benfica to reach the last-16 of the Europa League.
The Gunners left it late with an 87th minute winner but Saka continues to prove why he is one of the best young English talents around.
The versatile 19-year-old assisted two of Arsenal’s three goals, both to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The first was a beautiful pass to the captain who then lifted the ball over the Benfica goalkeeper.
The second was for the crucial winning goal where Saka found Aubameyang at the back post with another excellent pass.
As well as the assists, Saka posted some incredible match stats as he put in another fine performance.
He had 57 touches of the ball, recorded 92 per cent pass accuracy, and also helped Arsenal out defensively.

Saka has now provided eight assists in the Europa League since the start of last season, and no other player has more in that time.
He also has 18 assists in all competitions for Arsenal over that period, the most by any Gunners player.
The only English player at a Premier League club with more since the start of last season is Trent Alexander-Arnold who has 20.
The praise rolled in for the Arsenal man with club legend Cesc Fabregas hailing him as a ‘game changer’.
He wrote on Twitter: “Saka is such a good player. Such a maturity and intelligence for his age. Game changer.”
