“I’m on my feet clapping for him since, he was simply amazing and remarkable in today’s Arsenal win”- Arsenal legend Patrick Vierra claimed he couldn’t stop celebrating sensational Arsenal star after what he saw in him today- Player not named Eddie Nketiah, Fabio Vierra, or Smith Rowe
On Saturday afternoon, Arsenal fans were treated to a feast of five-star football and a 5-0 scoreline at the Emirates Stadium.
Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal defeated Premier League relegation rivals Sheffield United to move to second place in the rankings.
Eddie Nketiah’s hat-trick made him the undisputed man of the match, and Fabio Vieira and Takehiro Tomiyasu also scored.
In the 96th minute, the 24-year-old scored his first goal for Arsenal, reacting quickly at the corner to fire in from close range.
When commenting on the game, BBC Sport pundit Patrick Vierra mentioned how happy the Gunners bench was to witness Tomiyasu’s maiden goal for the club.
“Disaster again in the Sheffield United defence, but the delight from everyone in the Arsenal set-up is clear to see,” he remarked on BBC Sport’s Radio 5 Live.
“The players and staff on the bench are on their feet applauding, Tomiyasu clearly a very popular figure within the club and with the fans.”

Tomiyasu was also a bright spark for Arsenal, nearly getting himself an assist with a superb move to the byline.
The Japanese international has been an excellent addition to the Gunners squad. He was vital in his rookie season, but an injury kept him out for much of the second half.
Tomiyasu also had bad luck last season, with knee surgery keeping him out for much of the second half of the season.
Even though he’s no longer a regular starter, his attitude and contributions to the pitching staff remain outstanding.
The way Tomiyasu’s Arsenal teammates celebrated his goal demonstrates how popular he is in the locker room.
Mikel Arteta struck gold when he signed him for less than £20 million.
