The Nigerian winger was in blistering form as the Yellow Submarine tackle Mikel Arteta’s side on Thursday
Football enthusiasts are in awe of Samuel Chukwueze’s quality after his fine start to Thursday’s Uefa Europa League semi-final clash between Villarreal and Arsenal.
Chukwueze dazzled in Villarreal’s attack in the opening 45 minutes and he helped the Spanish club cruise to a two-goal lead before the break.
After scoring Villarreal’s only goal in their 2-1 defeat to Barcelona on Sunday, the Super Eagles star provided the assist as Manu Trigueros opened the scoring for the hosts in the fifth minute on Thursday.
A few minutes later, Raul Albiol doubled Villarreal’s lead but Nicolas Pepe’s second-half strike reduced the deficit for Arsenal.
Amazed by Chukwueze’s blistering run and contributions in the game, fans across social media suggested that the Nigerian forward could be the kind of player the Gunners think they have in Pepe and Bukayo Saka.

Samuel Chukwueze can be unplayable when he’s feeling it. Constantly making the most of 1v2’s and now that pass. Tremendous performance.

Chukwueze should be playing Champions League football. Has his flaws but he is electric and extremely entertaining!
