Young Bukayo Saka had a brilliant game for Arsenal this evening in Germany against Eintracht Frankfurt and capped a great night off with a beautifully taken goal in the 85th minute.
It was a quick counter from Arsenal starting all the way back with the impressive Emiliano Martinez who rolled the ball out to Granit Xhaka, the Swiss international then ran about 20 yards before sliding the ball to Nicholas Pepe who gets the assist for cutting it back to Saka who unleashed a stunning shot from the edge of the area to beat the Frankfurt keeper into the corner.
There will definitely be a lot more to come from the teenager and he will be in the running for a starting spot at the weekend against Aston Villa.

Fantastic display from the lad. Aston villa next…
What awoooow sakha keep it up n seal your place
Agree that Saka will be the best option for LW position at the upcoming Aston Villa game, because I don’t think Martinelli would cut it as a left winger
Emery should also try Nelson as an RW. I predict Nelson would give Pepe a run for his money there, because of Nelson’s playing experience with Willock and Smith-Rowe
Unfortunately Pepe has to start due to his big price tag
you your mouth more times than you change your panties….. I thought you were always calling for Martinelli to start over Nelson now you’re unsure if he’d cut it at LW
This gotanidea of a guy makes comments that I’m starting to take him for a comedian
You really got-no-idea
Saka played really well but Xhaka and Martinez were men of the match for me.
Martinez is such a confident goalkeeper, he’s good with crosses and also with stopping shots.
Martinez is extremely good,Saka os brilliant-the calmness of the boy.Pepe and and his dead right foot will be the root of our frustrations
The biggest aspect that sets Martinez above Leno is s fast distribution, Leno needs too much time work out what to do with the ball, Martinez just gets on with it.
Well done Saka. Well done Willock. We were lucky to keep a clean sheet though. One good thing though was Emiliano Martinez….he actually took real goal kicks. If he would have played against Watford we would not have given that bizarre goal away. By the way…..Aubamayang is class.
I think Martinez should start this weekend, i like his ball distribution, his confidence. Did the coach instruct him not to start play from the back?
Either that or he ignored Emery. Whatever happened, it was better than the disaster against Watford.
