Bukayo Saka hits top form ahead of crucial Tottenham clash

For the last two seasons, Bukayo Saka has been a revelation since breaking into the Arsenal first team, and has rightly been voted as the Player of the Season twice in a row.

But, with the Gunners sitting pretty at top of the League so far in this campaign, Saka has not really been in his best form and has looked a little jaded, although the opposing defenders do try to give him as little room as possible, which has given our other attackers more freedom to roam.

But thanks to the international break he has finally got a rest from Arsenal, and it seems to have done him some good. Gareth Southgate was criticised for playing Saka as a wingback against Italy, but last night he was brought on for the last 20 minutes with the Three Lions losing 2-0 to our archrivals Germany, and immediately transformed the game.

England turned the game around with three goals in 20 minutes with Saka running rings around the Germans, and only a last minute equaliser from Kai Havertz spoilt the night.

The Arsenal man certainly cheered up the England fans with the World Cup just a couple of months away, but more importantly it looks like the 21 year-old is back to his sublime form ahead of the North London Derby on Saturday. With him and Odegaard running the show once again we should be hot favourites to beat Tottenham and pull clear of our rivals at the top of the League…

  1. He had more space to cut inside on the right wing, but the Germans were tired and more disorganized after the 70th minute. He still did a great job as a super sub though

    As for the NLD, I think Spuds defenders have already been familiar with Saka’s tendencies. He’ll need our left overload tactic to work well, so he could have more space on the right wing to exploit

    This is why Martinelli, Xhaka, Zinchenko and Magalhaes had better start if they’re fit to play

    1. “He had more space to cut inside on the right wing, but the Germans were tired and more disorganized after the 70th minute.”
      What are you talking about GAI? Did you even watch the England game?
      And what do you mean by stating that “I think Spuds defenders have already been familiar with Saka’s tendencies”!

      1. I watched the footage of Saka cutting inside to assist Mount

        Spuds defenders have already faced Saka several times, so they must’ve remembered Saka’s favorite movements in the games

  2. This is my dream fixture a mouth watering derby in the red side of London.

    Forms goes out the window in these local encounters,
    But am looking at our line up through one eye only hoping Partey do shake off that little knock.

    Knowing the gaffer he will be going for the jugular, this is a win that could set the tone until January.

  3. Players like Foden,Sancho and Grileash possess the talent of close control,but still they are indeed of colleagues to collaborate with to create the space,but Saka is very unique and direct player,knowing how to keep the ball under high pressure.what a player?

  4. I’m sure Spurs will try hitting us on the counter, I really hope Tierney and Tomiyasu start, with Zinchenko and white as subs, this way we will defend properly and stay fresh against spur’s fierce attack, we can’t afford the same mistakes we made against Man United.
