The Gunners’ first goal against Everton saw two players under 21 score and assist for the Emirates Stadium giants since 2008
Eddie Nketiah’s opener in Sunday’s Premier League tie between Arsenal and Everton saw the Gunners get a goal and assist by two under-21 players.
21 – Nketiah’s opening goal, assisted by Bukayo Saka, is the first goal that @Arsenal have netted in the Premier League that was scored and assisted by two under-21 players since September 2008, when Denilson assisted Nicklas Bendtner vs Bolton. Kindergarten. pic.twitter.com/IkhtDSxSc4

The last time this was achieved was in September 2008 when Nicklas Bendtner was assisted by Denilson in the fixture versus Bolton Wanderers.
Nketiah levelled 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.
Who assisted Eddie? You know who assisted Eddie.

The assist was Saka’s 10th of the season in all competitions and third in as many games.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang then gave Arsenal the lead six minute later, before Richarlison’s effort ensured that the first-half ended 2-2 at the Emirates Stadium.
Both teams would go into the second half with ambition of securing maximum points which would aid their top-four finish ambition.
