ARSENAL legend Ian Wright and current Gunners star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have heaped praise on Ousmane Dembele for his stunning solo goal against Spurs.
The Gabon striker took to social media to compliment his former BVB team-mate – calling him "incredible" after he netted the worldie to put Barca in front.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright could not resist the urge to put his six pence in too – replying with a 'How much?' GIF in response to the forward.
Dembele has been a target for the Gunners in recent months.
The French starlet has not found life to be a smooth ride so far with the Catalan giants – with numerous incidents of him arriving late and falling out of favour with boss Ernesto Valverde.
Just this morning SunSport reported that the French international was fined £90,000 of his wages for arriving late to training – with his boss reportedly "very, very angry".

But if there was ever a goal that could convince the Emirates faithful convinced of his ability – it was his magnificent solo effort against Spurs.
The 21-year-old picked up the ball from the halfway line and drove his way into Tottenham’s box before cutting the ball back to his left and striking past Hugo Lloris.
However, his team-mates are not willing to let him leave due to his undeniable talent.
Lionel Messi backed his team-mate after their La Liga win on the weekend.
He said: "We are happy for Dembele. Today he has scored again.
"He is animated and will do very well. We need Dembele."

And it is no surprise Gunners fans have expressed their desire for his services.
Arsenal fans took to Twitter to plead manager Unai Emery to sign Dembele, who has scored six times in 14 La Liga appearances this season.
One said: “Barca, please sell Dembele to Arsenal. We beg you.”
While another said: “Arsenal needs to get Dembele at all cost.”
