Arsenal maintained their unbeaten run in 2020 as the fans at the Emirates stadium witnessed their team put up a scintillating display in the 3-2 comeback win against Everton.
The Gunners saw themselves fall behind in the very first minute of the game. However, the belief in the team did not diminish as academy product Edward Nketiah brought them level just before Aubameyang momentarily put Arsenal ahead.
Despite conceding a late first half equalizer, the home team came roaring back into the lead as Aubameyang again slotted the ball in the back of the net just after the restart, which proved to be the winning goal.
Besides amassing 3 points in a bid to secure the Champions League spot for next season, another reason for the fans to be euphoric is the growing partnership between Eddie Nketiah and Bukayo Saka, who linked up together to score Arsenal’s first goal in the game.
The connection between the two was evident on the field and off of it as well as both Saka and Nketiah went pun-crazy in their celebrations after the win on social media.
Arsenal fans would have loved how both the players used jargons one generally uses while talking about mobile phones connectivity as they celebrated combining for the goal and the overall win against Everton.

The goal also saw them break Arsenal’s 12-year old record of a Premier League goal being scored and assisted by two under-21 players, previously held by Nicklas Bendtner and Denilson.
Saka & Nketiah have known each other from their time in the academy and the duo could prove vital as Arteta’s men hope to see the rest of the season off by providing the fans with some beautiful football and hopefully a Champions League spot in the process.
