West Ham superkid Reece Oxford dazzled against Arsenal, a club he grew up supporting.

The teenager was handed a start by new boss Slaven Bilic in the club's 2015/16 Premier League opener - and his flawless display against a particular opponent underlined how far he had come.

From pleading with his boyhood club to buy a superstar, he is now standing out for a Premier League opponent, and absolutely dominating the player he wanted the club to buy.
