Arsenal fans are rather excited about the emergence of Alex Iwobi.
The teenager scored his first goal for the Gunners as Arsene Wenger's men bounced back from a pretty disastrous week to maintain any faint hopes they may have of a late charge for the Premier League title.
The 19-year-old Nigeria international was handed his first top-flight start in the match with Everton at Goodison Park, and showed brilliant composure to score the visitors' second shortly before half-time after Danny Welbeck had broken the deadlock early with his fourth goal in nine games.
The match finished 2-0, and Iwobi was unquestionably the stand-out player, and in fact, he was so good that some supporters are now comparing him to Anthony Martial.
Iwobi is more of a pure finisher than Martial- :soccer::soccer::soccer::soccer::soccer::soccer: (@LoneWolf_1972) March 19, 2016
Martial has been a diamond in Manchester United's otherwise glum season, scoring 11 goals despite being just 20-years-old.
Iwobi's guile and calmness under pressure earned him the comparison with he France international, but is it too soon?
We'll let you be the judge:
