Arsenal teenager Saka skilful like Juventus star Ronaldo - Owen

Only turning 17 three months ago, Ealing-born Saka is one of Arsenal's hottest academy prospects and he impressed on Thursday night as the Gunners sealed a 1-0 win over Qarabag in their final Europa League game.

Mesut Ozil returned to action in midweek following his recent back troubles, while Emery expects fellow attacking midfielder Aaron Ramsey to be recovered from an ankle injury.

"We give them these chances in the games like today, when we can do that".

"They changed the coach, but they have the same players and they are going to change things with the new coach [and will] improve I think".

"Every young player, we have the responsibility to give them chances, first to train with us and to be demanding with their performances", Emery began, as quoted by Arsenal's official website.

When to catch the Geminid meteor shower this weekend
But it is slated to set about 10 p.m., after which the sky should be the darkest and best time for viewing the light display. In the hours before sunrise Friday, the most meteors will be visible in the North American sky, peaking about 7:30 a.m.


Gunners captain Laurent Koscielny started for the first time since suffering a serious achilles injury at Atletico Madrid since May - while the head coach also fielded starlets Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock and Bukayo Saka. They [the young players] were trying one-to-one against the opposition and it was not actually very good for us, but his [Sako's] personality was very important to [him] continuing in the second half, trying to do one-to-ones and break lines with his quality. He played with a very big personality for the 90 minutes, and with sometimes a good performance. Today Saka also showed a good performance with a very big personality.

"Now we will think for Sunday".

"And then there is this process with him, to take confidence again, take rhythm by playing matches like today".

"I think also he is OK for Sunday". "But for us it's also very important".
