Bukayo Saka is quality, fresh, curious... and he makes Alex Lacazette feel old!
The England international was outstanding as we came on strong in the second half to beat Brighton in our last game of 2020.
Saka set up a great chance for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and then made a 40-yard burst to set up Lacazette for a goal just 21 seconds after he came off the bench.
"Yeah, Bukayo gave me a good pass, the kind I like. It was good for me," said Lacazette afterwards.
"Bukayo was really good. He's really improved and he's shown his quality. Even though he's young, he's still working hard for the team, so everyone is happy with him now.
"The young players make me feel old!" Lacazette joked. "They are good, young players who are fresh. For me, it's really nice to work with them, to speak with them. They're curious and they want to improve. Every day it's a pleasure to play with them.
"I'm really happy. When I came off the bench I wanted to help the team, and today I was lucky that with my first touch I could score. It's good for me and it's good for the team as well."
