Saka - It was a beautiful night for me

Bukayo Saka hailed a "beautiful night" for him personally after he scored and assisted in our 2-2 draw with Standard Liege.

The teenage forward set up Alex Lacazette's strike with a pinpoint cross from the left, before equalising at the end of a mazy run.

Saka spoke to the media after the game - and this is what he said?

on winning the group…
It’s a good feeling because on the pitch we didn’t know [the result in the Frankfurt game] and were pushing for the third goal to try to win the game but Freddie was trying to tell us that Frankfurt were down. Everyone came into the changing room after and found out we were top of the group.

on the importance of finishing top…
I feel like if we lost and finished second, we would have had to face tougher teams. Obviously we are going to have to face tough teams in the Europa League but it is easier if we face an [unseeded] team next. We can take confidence and keep going from round to round and progress.

on his own performance…
It was beautiful for me because that is what I am judged on, scoring and assisting, so to score and to make one is a good night.

on coming from two goals down…
We feel we are taking a lot of confidence. In our last game in the Premier League we won, and while we didn’t win here we came back. We always keep our heads and try to get a result because we knew what the stakes were and that if we lost we could possible be out.
