Cesc Fabregas has hailed English youngster of Nigerian descent, Bukayo Saka, following his fine showing against Manchester United in Monday’s Premier League showdown.

The 18-year-old etched his name into the history books having made Unai Emery’s starting XI in the Gunners’ 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

In just his third English top-flight outing, he assisted Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who equalised for the North Londoners to cancel out Scott McTominay’s opener.

The teenager’s display did not go unnoticed by the Arsenal great, who now plays for Monaco.

"Saka is a player. 18 years old showing great maturity," Fabregas Tweeted. 

Saka was not expected to make an impression so soon, but his Europa League strike and assists against Eintracht Frankfurt fast-tracked his involvement.
