Bukayo Saka was the star performer for Arsenal, as they booked their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup following a 2-1 defeat of Bournemouth on the road.

Mikel Arteta's men set up a last-16 trip to third-tier Portsmouth after securing a deserved victory at the Vitality Stadium in Monday's game.

England-born, Nigeria eligible youngster, Bukayo Saka, scored the opening goal of the game and was the provider of the Gunners’ second in the first half.

Saka netted his third goal in 22 appearances across all competitions this season five minutes into the game when he finished off a fine team move involving all 10 outfield players, with Joe Willock and Gabriel Martinelli proving particularly influential in the build-up.

The versatile England U-19 star, who started in the left-back position, turned provider 21 minutes later when his low cross was poked home by former Leeds United loanee, Eddie Nketiah.

Bournemouth pulled one back later on through substitute, Sam Surridge, but his strike proved to be only a consolation.

Arteta and his men will now switch focus to Sunday's Premier League trip to Burnley while Bournemouth will prepare to host Aston Villa, as both teams continue their fight against relegation.
