Watch: Bukayo Saka & Maitland-Niles hilariously wind up Tammy Abraham
The Gunners had a two-goal lead thanks to Alexandre Lacazette’s penalty and Granit Xhaka’s free-kick before Saka made it 3-0 in the 56th minute.
The 19-year-old picked up the ball on the edge of the box before producing a remarkable lob that clipped the inside of the post and hit the back of the net.
While pundits suggested that his effort was a mis-hit cross, Saka was adamant he was aiming at goal and had seen Edouard Mendy out of position.
“I saw him off his line so I thought I could chip him!” the England international told BBC Sport after the game.
The Chelsea striker – who scored the consolation goal for the Blues – was having absolutely none of it, telling Saka: “You didn’t mean it, shut up man.”
Saka and Ainsley Maitland-Niles were both in hysterics as a frustrated Abraham walked away.
