In the 23rd minute of tonight’s Europa League quarter-final between Slavia Prague and Arsenal, a marauding Calum Chambers beat his man with some tidy footwork, before sending a pass through…
That was directed towards wonderkid Bukayo Saka, who faced up his man before effortlessly gliding past his Slavia Prague marker.
Saka carried the ball just inside the box from the right-wing before firing it into the near post bottom corner with a lovely finish.
The 19-year-old gave the Czech Republican side a warning over his shooting early on, as a strike rattled the woodwork and was turned in by Emile Smith Rowe only to be disallowed, ultimately Prague didn’t learn their lesson and were punished by Saka.

Mikel Arteta will be absolutely delighted with the side’s start to the match, perhaps one of their best all season.
