Young Arsenal defender Bukayo Saka has had praised heaped upon him by the likes of Gary Neville and Gary Lineker following his performance in the Gunners' 3-2 win over Everton.
Saka, who has been impressing in recent weeks, was a substitute for the game against the Toffees, but was introduced to the action after just 18 minutes after Sead Kolasinac was injured.
And he played a huge part in his side's equaliser against Carlo Ancelotti's side by delivering a wonderful cross for Eddie Nketiah to tap home.
Saka looked assured throughout the rest of the match, and speaking on Sky Sports Neville lauded the 18-year-old for his assist.
"(Alex) Iwobi goes to sleep a little bit but he doesn't do too much wrong. But that cross, wow. There is not a lot a defender can do about that and neither can the goalkeeper.
"The quality of the cross was absolutely outstanding. All you want is your striker in that position and he (Nketiah) is. He gets a good contact on it.
"It's harsh to suggest that Arsenal fans were happy that Sead Kolasinac went off but there was a bit of a cheer. What a cross from Saka. I was having a mundane chat because I thought nothing was on."
Match of the Day presenter Lineker seemed equally as impressed by Saka, and took to Twitter to say: "Wonderful cross from the very exciting young talent that is Bukayo Saka. Expertly finished too by Eddie Nketiah."
