Arsenal went on to win the Europa League tie 3-2 on the day and 4-3 on the whole and Gunners trailed Benfica 2-1 when Willian came on.

Mikel Arteta singled Willian for “changing the game” against Benfica as Arsenal saved a dramatic victory to advance from the last-32 tie of Thursday’s Europa League.

Aubameyang took the plaudits with his late goal, but Arteta felt Willian, who set up Tierney’s goal, was the real hero of the Gunners.

“Willian, specifically, I think he changed the game,” Arteta said at his post-match news conference.

“He gave us much more composure in moments, produced some creativity, produced the goal for Kieran and we need everybody on board.”

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
