Ghanaian international Eddie Nketiah’s equalizer in Sunday’s Premier League tie between Arsenal and Everton saw the Gunners get a goal and assist by two under-21 players.
The last time this was achieved was in September 2008 when Nicklas Bendtner was assisted by Denilson in the fixture against Bolton Wanderers.
Nketiah levelled the scores for Mikel Arteta’s men after Dominic Calvert-Lewin had handed the Toffees a first-minute lead. Substitute Saka launched a lovely cross that the Ghanaian poked home.
The assist was Saka’s 10th of the season in all competitions and third in as many games.
On his part club captain and Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, extended his inspiring run of scoring more Premier League goals on Sundays.
Aubameyang has been directly involved in 38 goals in 38 English top-flight outings on Sundays, (32 goals, 6 assists), compared to 17 goals in 36 games on all other days of the week.
