Europa League By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 19/09/2019

Nigerian descent Saka Bukayo becomes the youngest Arsenal player to score in the Europa League after a 3-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt in their Europa League group stage opener at  Commerzbank-Arena on Thursday night.

Making his second start for Gunners, 18-year-old opened his account for the club in the 85th minute and added an assist for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang two minutes later as a much-changed line-up bounced back from a second-half collapse against Watford in the Premier League on Saturday.

The late flurry came after Dominik Kohr was shown a second yellow card for a trip on Saka, with Joe Willock having opened the scoring in an open encounter in German.

Arsenal return to Premier League encounter as they welcome Aston Viall to Emirate on Sunday afternoon encounter.
