“He’s the best teammate I’ve ever had in my career, he used to tell me to pass to him every time”- Arsenal hero Leandro Trossard confesses he was utterly blown away last night by how amazing his 23-year-old Arsenal colleague was.
Leandro Trossard was blown away by how good Arsenal teammate Bukayo Saka played last night.
Saka took to social media after his Champions League debut went flawlessly.
Arsenal’s return to Europe’s top flight couldn’t have gone any better last night at the Emirates.
Bukayo Saka scored on his Champions League debut in just eight minutes, pouncing on a rebound from a Martin Odegaard attempt.
He subsequently became a provider for Leandro Trossard, who scored for the second game in a row.
The injury to Gabriel Martinelli is a setback for the Gunners, but the 28-year-old has demonstrated once again that he is a capable deputy.
Trossard and Saka both performed admirably for Arsenal against PSV last night and will be pleased with the outcome.
They go into a crucial North London derby full of confidence, looking to extend their unbeaten streak this season.
It’s going to be arguably their toughest test in the league so far with both sides yet to lose a game.
Trossard impressed with Arsenal star Saka vs PSV
Saka wrote on Instagram after the last whistle, “A night I’ll never forget.” CL debut, CL goal, and 3 points. “We’re back where we belong.”
He received numerous replies, including one from Jude Bellingham, who said, “Congrats brother,” and another from Ian Wright, who simply said, “Elite!”
Saka was “On firee” for Arsenal against PSV last night, according to Jurrien Timber and Leandro Trossard.
The Gunners will have greater testing in the Champions League coming season, but they have already looked quite comfortable at this level.
Saka wowed Arsenal veteran Thierry Henry last night, who would have appreciated how clinical he was in scoring his first goal.
He had to fire from such a close angle, but the keeper had no chance as he attempted to recover from Odegaard’s first effort.
Saka looks right at home in the Champions League, which should come as no surprise.
He’s one of the top players in the Premier League and has excelled on England’s biggest stage.
Saka is already looking forward to Arsenal’s visit to Lens at the start of next month.
