  1. better than Cristiano Ronaldo. No pressure then!
  • debut against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup, he now has four goals in just two starts for the Gunners.

    And at one point on Thursday he was the top trend worldwide, highlighting the buzz around the talented forward tipped to be the next Brazilian superstar.

  • put Arsenal 2-0 up inside 16 minutes.

    As well as another impressive display by the 19-year-old, left-back Kieran Tierney, 22 and forwards Willock, 20, and Reiss Nelson, 19, also caught the eye.

    “We have to give the chances to the young players and they take them,” said Arsenal boss Unai Emery.

    “They are close to playing for us at the highest levels. They showed that they can perform and they can score. They are playing well, it’s good.”

  • Wolves boost chance of progression

    And let’s remember that Besiktas are no mugs. Wolves are the first English side to win there since
    Manchester United during the 2009-10 Champions League group stage – Wolves are the fifth Premier League side to visit since.

    The Turkish side are now bottom of Group K with no points, though, with Wolves third – just a point behind both Slovan Bratislava and Sporting Braga – so there’s a real chance they can go through to the knock-out stage now.

  • first win of the group stage at Besiktas.

    Wolves are in the main stage of a European competition for the first time in 39 years, and Coady is determined to make the most of the opportunity.

    “We want to compete to win,” said their captain Coady. “We’ve said the whole time we’ve been here, we’re not here to make up the numbers, we’re here to have a good go.”

  • “good performance” in the Netherlands and were denied a “nailed-on penalty” for a foul on Marcus Rashford.
