Keown is thrilled to see Arsenal youngsters shine in the Europa League.

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown admits. He is excited to see Marquinhos perform in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The Brazilian made a move to the Premier League with Arsenal in the summer. But was unable to feature for the first team in the first six games of the season until the last game against FC Zurich.

In that game, Mikel Arteta sent Marquinhos into the starting XI and he did not disappoint as he scored one goal and add one assist as Arsenal beat their opponents 2-1. After the game. Keown praised the star player’s form on the Team Talk website.

“It’s confidence. We talk about class in possession. Which I have seen many times from Marquinhos tonight.

“Looking at the passing for Fabio Vieira, it was a great ball that went through that hole. We talk about Nketiah’s son and his movements. And then it was a great pass from his dominant foot.”

“Then it was the finish, the ball came to him and it was a beautiful goal for him. Hopefully we can see him having a great future ahead of him.”

Bukayo Saka is only two or three years older than him. But he has the right to be given the opportunity,” Keown said.
