Breathtaking is probably the word that can perfectly describe that Arsenal performance against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday evening after recording quite an impressive win.
Bukayo Saka was unreal on the right flank where he created a goal for Smith Rowe before finishing one himself just before half time.
The England international has been for a while Arsenal's best player and does deliver for them in many ways.
However in today's match, one star who stood out for many was the unsung hero Takehiro Tomiyasu who started as a right back in a back four of Ben White, Gabriel and Tierney.
The Japanese international was very good with his creative passing and silenced the ever dangerous Heung Min-Son while also was a constant threat going forward.
Arsenal have been missing a proper modern right back ever since the departed Bellerin fell from his standards hence lacking a threat from the wide areas.
However the addition of Tomiyasu makes Arsenal look like a new side and the fact that he plays on the same flank as Saka makes him a very big threat that teams should be aware of.
Just 22-years of age, he is fast, flexible and also tall to deal with high balls making him such a gem for Mikel Arteta to have.
