Cesc Fabregas names the two Arsenal players currently impressing him the most
Arsenal make it eight unbeaten
Arsenal dispatched Leeds United 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night to advance to the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup, and make it eight unbeaten for the Gunners in the process.
After a dull first half, goals from Rob Holding and Eddie Nketiah were enough to seal their progression into the next round of the competition, with the draw set to be made on Saturday morning.

The situation the Gunners find themselves in is a far cry from the hopelessness felt after three games, when they were rooted to the foot of the Premier League table, and had just been hammered 5-0 by Manchester City at the Etihad stadium.
While still only 10th in the Premier League, they have gone 8 games unbeaten in all competitions, and are recovering from their awful start as they now sit just three points outside of the top 4. A win against Leicester this weekend would do them the world of good in that regard.
Fabregas hails impressive pair
Speaking on a twitter QandA, former Gunner Cesc Fabregas revealed who he thought the two most impressive Arsenal players this season were. The Spaniard spent 8 years in north London, after breaking through as a youth, and went on to make 304 appearances, netting on 58 occasions. Clearly then, he knows a thing or two about playing for the Arsenal.
It was another young pair that Fabregas was quick to highlight, in the form of Hale End duo Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe, when asked who he most enjoys watching play in red and white this season.

Both Saka and Smith Rowe have come in for massive praise in recent weeks and months, and it is yet further testament to their ability that one of their idols recognises it too.
