The Nigeria international has now scored one goal and has made three assists in 16 appearances in all competitions this season.

“Pleased To Get My First Champions League Goal But Most Importantly, Good To Finish Top Of The Group! 👌🏾 #BIG17”

Arsenal are bidding to reach the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2010.

The Gunners have never won the Champions League despite finishing as runners-up in 2006 after a 2-1 loss to Barcelona.
