In doing so, Saka also set an amazing Champions League record thanks to his amazing form in European home games.

The Englishman has now become the first player to score and assist in the first three games of his Champions League career.

Indeed, even players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo or Thierry Henry were unable to do so at the start of their European travels.

Saka has been in fantastic form in the Champions League, scoring three goals and providing four assists in just five games for Arsenal.
