Arsenal got their Europa League campaign off to a fantastic start against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday.
With the Eagles coming off the back of an impressive campaign, which saw them reach the semi-finals of this very competition, it had the potential to be a very difficult encounter for a Gunners side currently low on confidence after three games without a win.
However, it ended up being a comfortable night for Unai Emery’s men, as they ran out 3-0 winners at the Commerzbank Arena.
A number of fringe players were given the chance to prove themselves, and they performed well for the most part. In particular, Bukayo Saka was impressive, scoring once and providing the assists for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s and Joe Willock’s strikes.

This Saka performance was amazing though, and there are less senior players ahead
