That player is Bukayo Saka, whose starring displays proved crucial to Arsenal booking their spot in the Europa League Round of 16.

Saka scored Arsenal’s only goal in a first-leg meeting with Benfica. And the 19-year-old then provided two assists as the Gunners came from 2-1 down to beat the Portuguese outfit 3-2 in the second-leg:
