Arsenal fans react to Charlie Patino scoring on his debut
It couldn’t have gone any better for Arsenal in the Carabao Cup quarter-final tie against Sunderland.
The Gunners cruised past the League One side to enter the semis of the tournament and are just a touching distance away from the final.
A sublime hat-trick by Eddie Nketiah was complemented by a superb team performance and a debut goal for Hale End graduate Charlie Patino.
At the latter stages of the game, his name was reverberating from every corner of the stadium.
I hope this trend continues. Patino being the man. Arsenal fans his lovers.
Here’s how Arsenal Twitter reacted to the young Hale End academy product scoring on his first appearance in the iconic red and white jersey…

Charlie Patino scored after only ten minutes on the pitch.
I crunched the numbers and found that he would have scored nine goals if he started.

The original plan the club had for him was to make his debut next season. But due to his impressive performances in the u23’s level, that plan was brought forward.
He’s a player who remains ahead of the curve. Who knows where he will be standing in a year or twos time?
At the heart of the Gunners team? Well, many people are rooting for that to happen.
