Teenager Saka leads Arsenal to win in Frankfurt


Arsenal teenager Bukayo Saka scored a lovely goal and set up two more as the Gunners beat Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0 in their Europa League Group F opener in Germany on Thursday night.

An entertaining end-to-end first half saw both teams miss quality chances before Arsenal opened the scoring on a 38th minute counter-attack with Joseph Willock firing home with the help of a wicked deflection to beat Kevin Trapp.

Arsenal backup goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez made a number of quality saves in the opening 45 minutes, including one just before half-time from a close-range Andre Silva shot to preserve the visitors' 1-0 lead at the break.

Arsenal brought on new arrival Nicolas Pepe on the hour mark in search of a second goal, but it was the home side that continued to force the issue and Martinez was repeatedly called into action to keep the Gunners in the lead.
