Bukayo Saka still had plenty to do. But this was another night when you knew that he would do it. The Arsenal winger was gliding up the right, his team 1-0 up, 64 minutes on the clock and, when he sliced inside, the shift was so explosive that his standing foot appeared to slip.
Almost in the same movement, he caught it and pulled a move on the Sevilla defender, Adrià Pedrosa, easing away from him. The shot was steered home with the minimum of fuss and Arsenal planted one foot in the last 16 of the Champions League. With the minimum of fuss. They are practically there.
