📷 Dominik Szoboszlai: Match Performance

⏱️ 12' Szoboszlai showed composure from the spot to hammer home to the goalkeeper's right after a handball inside the area.

⏱️ 25' And thirteen minutes later he produced a carbon copy after another penalty was awarded, and he rifled the ball home into the same position of the goal.

⏱️ 52' And he was able to complete his treble when team-mate Karim Adeyemi ran through on goal and unselfishly rolled to his right to allow the Hungarian to tap into the net.

As well as his three goals Szoboszlai's set-piece delivery and general crossing was always a threat, creating one Big Chance for team-mates in the process.

Szoboszlai: What Next?

The 20-year-old is rapidly looking too good for this level in a similar vein to Erling Haaland when he was scoring multiple goals every week. It's unlikely the player will leave in January, but Mikel Arteta has identified him as a key target for next summer and at this rate, he won't be the only one.
