'The next starboy': Arsenal fans believe they already have the new Saka after watching West Ham game

Arsenal returned to Premier League action on Sunday with an impressive 6–0 win away at West Ham.

Mikel Arteta made the most of the opportunity to give Ethan Nwaneri his first taste of the Premier League action this season.

The 16-year-old midfielder impressed Arsenal supporters with 15-minute cameo, with some fans even noticing hints of Mesut Ozil and Bukayo Saka in his game.

manuuuf490 (all reactions via /r/Gunners): "Nwaneri appeared very mature. Also looks like he's grown a bit."

flentaldoss: "Nwaneri looked as comfortable as any other player on the pitch while he was on. Found space, linked up, took players on. Definitely someone who looks ready to get real opportunities in the squad."

hairwire: "Nwaneri looked so calm, so poised for a 16-year-old boy. The next starboy."

younes1008: "Been thinking about who Nwaneri reminds me of in the way he moves. Finally I worked it out: His mannerisms are like a baby Ozil."

Agreeapple: "Nwaneri looked great. He also looks like he can read Odegaard's passes and will link up with him well in the future, which is an issue with Nketiah for me."

sekiroisart: "Nwaneri feels like a very mature man, he really feels like another Saka with how calm he with the ball and how he can position himself well even with the West Ham crowd."
