Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to react after watching footage of Omari Hutchinson shining against Blackburn in the Premier League 2.
What’s the story?
Well, the 18-year-old London Colney gem scored a wondergoal against Blackburn, as Arsenal edged a thrilling game with a 3-2 win.
Hutchinson’s goal turned out to be crucial in that respect.
The teenager picked the ball up just past the halfway line, before driving forward and unleashing an unstoppable effort into the top corner from roughly 25 yards out.
One fan ordered Mikel Arteta to promote the wonderkid and sell Nicolas Pepe to make room for him in the squad.
Another supporter simply said that Hutchinson is better than Martin Odegaard.
Omari Hutchinson can be Bukayo Saka 2.0 at Arsenal
The gems in London Colney can certainly take encouragement from the rise of Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe under Arteta.
Evidently, the Spaniard will give chances to young players, which is great to see.
In our view, Hutchinson can be Saka 2.0 at the Emirates Stadium.
The pair are both similar players, and both possess excellent versatility to their game.
As Transfermarkt shows, Hutchinson has played as a left-winger, centre-forward, attacking midfielder and also on the right of midfield this season.
Arteta likes fluidity in his players, so that versatility should only increase the teenager’s chances of a first-team debut.
For now, let’s see what the Arsenal fans on Twitter have been saying about Hutchinson’s goal against Blackburn…
