Arsenal’s u23s beat Derby’s 2-1 on Friday afternoon.
An early goal from Savvas Mourgos and late one from Eddie Nketiah meant that Derby’s Timi Max Elnick’s equaliser in the 52nd minute meant nothing.
However, it was Ismael Bennacer’s assist for our first goal, which has managed to get tongue wagging.
After cleanly barging his way onto the ball, the 19-year-old lofted a pass that even Granit Xhaka would be proud of the the awaiting Mourgos.
The youngster displayed strength, speed and skill all in just a few seconds.
Watch the assist – and goal – for yourself below.
