Saka provided two assists, as the Gunners booked their place in the Round of 16 4-3 on aggregate.

Don Hutchison was also impressed by winger Saka last night, and the former Liverpool midfielder – who now works as a pundit for Premier League Productions – believes that the 19-year-old – who can also operate as a left-back – is the best player at Arsenal.
Bukayo Saka or Mason Mount?
According to WhoScored, Saka has played 11 games as a right attacking midfielder, while Mount has operated was a central midfielder 15 times and 10 times as a central attacking midfielder so far this season.
Both the 19-year-old and the 22-year-old can be part of the England squad in the summer if Southgate wants them.
