“The Chemistry between the two of them is absolutely crazy, I’ve never seen such before from a premier league player “- Arsenal Legend Thierry Henry was so emotional as he was blown away and full of prises by Arsenal’s brilliant duo in the Champions League last night
‘HELL OF AWARENESS’: THIERRY HENRY BLOWN AWAY BY ARSENAL DUO IN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE TONIGHT
Bukayo Saka and Leandro Trossard blew Thierry Henry away in Arsenal’s Champions League win over PSV on Wednesday night.
Arsenal returned to the Champions League after a six-year absence, with none other than Bukayo Saka scoring the opening goal.
Thierry Henry stated on CBS Sports on Paramount+ (20/09/23 at 8:55 pm) that the 22-year-old pounced on a goalkeeping blunder following a shot from Martin Odegaard, and that “he is scoring goals like a striker now.”
Bukayo Saka then set up Leandro Trossard for his first Champions League goal, with Thierry Henry impressed by the ‘awareness’ the Hale-End star shown in finding his partner on the edge of the box.
Arsenal fans were in high spirits by this point because their team had dominated and dominated their Dutch opponents after only 20 minutes.
But the Gunners didn’t stop there, as Gabriel Jesus and skipper Martin Odegaard joined the party to cap off an incredible first night in the Champions League for the club.
“We talked about Bukayo Saka at the beginning,” Henry explained. “We can see Odegaard on strike.” That should have been put into the corner by the goalkeeper.
“But Bukayo Saka, the man, is there, scoring goals like a striker now.” Just after the shot.
“Then here, they linked up wonderfully, Bukayo Saka puts him, awareness, he waits for Leandro Trossard, make no mistake, that’s a hell of an awareness pass at the edge of the box.” But what a comeback by Leandro Trossard.
“I like how you don’t have to pass people just to serve your teammates here.” What a left-footed cross, Leandro Trossard. He (Gabriel Jesus) had complete control of it and hammered it into the net.”
Bukayo Saka going to the top
The England star is on his way to the top because he has demonstrated for years on the Premier League stage that he is one of the finest.
Now it’s time to take that to the Champions League, where the finest of the best compete.
Saka is already off to a good start, but if he can maintain his consistency here, he will be able to proclaim himself world-class.
