England legend Gary Lineker was full of praise for Arsenal ace Bukayo Saka after the youngster’s assist vs Everton.
The former Tottenham Hotspur star branded the makeshift left-back as a ‘very exciting young talent’ with his reaction to Saka’s assist during yesterday’s game.
Saka assisted fellow Arsenal academy graduate Eddie Nketiah in the 27th minute of yesterday afternoon’s clash.
The versatile ace’s dangerous cross into the box left Nketiah with the perfect opportunity to equalise for the Gunners.
Wonderful cross from the very exciting young talent that is Bukayo Saka. Expertly finished too by Eddie Nketiah.

Saka has now provided 10 assists in 27 appearances across all competitions for Arsenal this season.
The 18-year-old has been phenomenal since being tasked with covering the left-back position following injuries to Sead Kolasinac and Kieran Tierney.
It wouldn’t be surprising to see the youngster fast-tracked through the England ranks following a run of impressive performances.
Saka is quickly establishing himself as an important first-team player for the Gunners.
Everyone i talk to from rival teams rates this kid and thats stating the obvious but they rate all our young guns coming through. Martinelli, Gouendouzi, Nketiah, Willock and others are being brought up in conversations about us. Thats when you know you have talent when rivals talk about them the way they do. Arteta will be pleased with what he has to work with from this talented crop of young guns.
