“A worthy 100 million buy” – Arsenal fans are thrilled with Declan Rice’s last-minute winner against Luton Town

Declan Rice has scored two 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 late winners since joining Arsenal for $138M

Declan Rice has sent Arsenal fans into ecstasy as his late winner pushes his club 5 points clear at the top of the Premier League. The ‘buzzer-beater’ by the Englishman happened in the 97th minute of the game when the score was 3-3. Arsenal won their sixth league game in a row thanks to his soaring header from the edge of the penalty area.

On Tuesday, Arsenal hosted Luton Town at Kenilworth Road. A game that many dismissed as ‘simple’ and ‘unchallenging’ turned out to be one of the most difficult games Arsenal has faced on the road this season. Luton Town were neck-and-neck with the league leaders until a late Declan Rice header saved the visitors.

Goals from Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel Jesus, and Kai Havertz were also among the game’s highlights. Declan Rice’s goal demonstrated once again why the club paid £105 million (100+5 add-ons) for his services. The fans erupted after Rice’s stoppage-time header, from Mikel Arteta to club veteran Ian Wright.

Declan Rice’s last-second goal has sparked a significant discussion regarding the player on social media. Fans praised him as a “savior,” and he is now known as the “master of late goals.” Rice has only scored three goals for Arsenal this season in all competitions. However, two of those three have arrived at critical times.

His late victory against Manchester United occurred in the 90+6th minute in September, while his winner against Luton Town came in the 90+7th minute. As a result, supporters crowded the comments section, looking for ways to justify his £100 million price tag. Furthermore, labels like the signing of the season and ‘best Rice in the market’ were among the other comments.
