The 18-year-old, who was playing for the first team for the first time this season, was outstanding on the left flank. He made a significant contribution during the game, scoring once and setting up the other two goals.
He was the main threat for the Gunners in the first half and produced a fantastic piece of skill to set up the opening foal for Willock.
The youngster could have easily added more goals to his tally had he not spurned a number of chances to increase Arsenal’s lead.
Arsenal enjoyed only 44% of possession. The Gunners registered 16 shots of which they managed to keep six on target.
