There are a host of promising youngsters and talented stars in action tonight in the Europa League and we've picked out five that you should keep an eye out for.
🏴 Joe Willock
The 20-year-old Englishman has been a regular in Unai Emery's Premier League squads this season and started the first two games. He's shown his ability to play in a withdrawn midfield role or just behind the strikers. He is starting tonight for The Gunners away to Eintracht Frankfurt.
🏴 Emile Smith Rowe
Smith Rowe has shown flashes of his talent in pre-season and on-loan at Rb Leipzig last season but his 2019/2020 campaign was cut short by injury. Now fully fit and back at Arsenal, he'll be hoping to impress and show off his dribbling skills and creativity in an attacking midfield starting role tonight.
🏴 Bukayo Saka
The tricky left-footed Arsenal winger has made a handful of first-team appearances for Arsenal, but tonight he'll be getting his first stint in the first team in 2019/2020. He starts alongside Smith Rowe and Willock in Arsenal's youthful side named by Unai Emery tonight. Saka only turned 18 earlier this month.
🇵🇹 Bruno Fernandes
The Sporting Lisbon and Portugal attacking midfielder was tracked all summer by Manchester United and other elite clubs around Europe but he's opted to stay in Portugal. He might well be attempting to put himself in the shop window again in January and top-class performances in Europe won't harm his chances. The 25-year-old bagged 20 goals & 13 assists in the Portuguese Primeira Liga last season, and he's already got three goals and four assists from five matches this season. All that from a number 10 attacking midfield role.
🇦🇴 Eduardo Camavinga
At just 16, the Angolan midfielder is earning rave reviews for French Ligue 1 club Rennes. He was voted as the best player in the division for August and became the youngest-ever player to achieve that honour. Top clubs around Europe will be watching him intently this season, but right now his focus will be to continue notching up more minutes and impressive performances for his current club.
