Although not all Arsenal fans were happy with our performance in last night’s draw at Man United, we must have all surely been impressed with Bukayo Saka, who became the Gunners youngest ever player in a match against United.
He was given Man of the Match by Dan in last night’s ratings, and even Unai Emery gave him a special mention in his after-match press conference. The coach said: “I think he’s working and improving, being mature and also playing matches in front each player and each team as tonight, young, as tonight, Manchester United. But his work is natural and he is improving. He is helping us now as an important player. We are going to work with him with him with calm, with patience, but if he deserves to take minutes and to take confidence for helping us with his performance, that is fantastic for us.”
When you think that last year we were crying out for wingers we now seem to have an abundance of them, which will surely help with Emery’s normal game plans. Saka is certainly more impressive than our 72m new signing Pepe at the moment.
One thing that caught my eye was that he was singled out for praise from our ex-captain Cesc Fabregas, who knows a thing or two about being young and talented. He tweeted during last night’s game….
Saka is a player. 18 years old showing great maturity 👏🏻
