Arsenal smashed three past Newcastle United to extend our unbeaten run to six games. Mikel Arteta’s men were made to work hard in the first half, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s brace either side of Bukayo Saka’s goal gave us the win.

Auba was named the man of the match for his goals but it was Arsenal’s youngsters who once again took all the plaudits.

Emile Smith Rowe and Saka were brilliant last night. The duo combined for our second goal and the teenager who started on the right-flank thanked his compatriot for the assist by giving him a new nickname.


Emile Smith Rowe has been referred to as the Croydon De Bruyne by Arsenal fans. The youngster’s performances have been raising the hype around him, and Saka calling him ‘Kevin’ will fuel that even more.

The 20-year-old started just his sixth ever Premier League game last night. He didn’t look out of place once, and his performance would have made any other number 10 proud – even Kevin de Bruyne.

The Manchester City star is arguably the best playmaker in the Premier League at the moment. His performances have helped his side win multiple titles in the past, and Arsenal fans will be hoping that Smith Rowe reaches the same heights in the future.

Arsenal fans thoroughly enjoyed Smith Rowe’s performance last night. The youngster is making a real difference in attacking midfield, and his combination play with Saka and our other attackers have been a joy to watch.

Saka’s nickname for Smith Rowe delighted Arsenal fans on Twitter. Here’s how a few of them reacted.
