Jadon Sancho is the gift that keeps on giving.
Now a first-team regular in Dortmund’s line-up, the youngster has been a big part of the Black and Yellows’ runaway form in the Bundesliga this season.
In fact, his link-up play with Marco Reus is one of the most exciting things happening right now.
With a very impressive four goals and six assists – including two in Saturday’s match against Hertha Berlin – Sancho is the first English player in Europe’s top five divisions to be directly involved in 10 league goals this season.
What were you doing when you were 18?
And his partnership with Reus deserves special praise, as the duo seem to really work well together on the pitch.
For example, Sancho has assisted more goals for Reus than any other Dortmund player since the start of last season.
Naturally, the German paid back the teenager with a super dummy to help him net BVB’s second against Berlin today.
Speaking last month about Sancho’s uncanny ability to come off the bench and cause havoc, Reus said:
“It’s just crazy. I think it’s incredibly important that he comes off the bench and does so well every time.
“When our opponents ease off a little and Jadon comes into the game, then he’s a weapon for us every single time. We’re happy to have him up our sleeve and he always gives us a boost.”
Sancho netted his first goal in the Champions League earlier this week, scoring just four minutes after coming on as a substitute against Atletico Madrid to become the second youngest English player to score a goal in the competition.
