Arsenal was able to get a goal advantage in their first leg Europa League fixture against Benfica, as the game end 1-1.
Bukayo Saka was yet the stand out performance of the night, as he got the equalising goal in the 57th minute, which should have been an easy win if the Gunners capitalised on their good chances.
However, among the attack of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in central position, and Odegaard, Smith-Rowe, and Saka in support, it was the Norwegian performance that impressed some Arsenal fans, which they took to twitter to express their delights.

Just a really well-rounded player and has the unique skillset of being able to drop multiple levels and play those weighted balls behind. Fits the team so well, thank you Zizou
