Bukayo Saka scored Arsenal’s only goal as they beat Aston Villa 1-0 in the Premier League this afternoon.
The England international has constantly proved he is the best player at the club right now and we can trust him to lead by example.
In the Premier League, he is also in a class of his own and his strike against the Villans is his 10th in all competitions this season.
9 of them have come in the EPL and he also has 5 assists to his name.
This stat means he and his teammate Emile Smith Rowe have scored the most goals by players 21 and under in the Premier League this season, according to Squawka.
When you add his assists, he now stands out alone as the under21 player with the most goal involvements in the Premier League in this campaign.
In Europe, only Erling Haaland (16) and Vinicius Jr (14) have more league goal involvements among U21 players than Saka, according to the report.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Saka is the most important attacker at Arsenal right now and he deserves credit for most of the things we have achieved as a club so far.
The 20-year-old is at the beginning of his playing career and has around a decade more to play.
He is a star in the making and the club needs to plan to keep him at the Emirates for the long term.
Plus he fired us to our milestone 2000 pl goals,joining the likes of utd and pool in achieving this feat.
A see a World star in him for years to Come ….A Sadio Mane …..
He’s already a star
Martinelli and Saka on both wings for years to come. Best of all they will only get better and more clinical over time!
SmithRowe & Øde are both along side them getting stronger each game. All under the age of 22, just get Saka on to a long term deal and we are set once we bring in a Top Forward
It’s a blessing 2 have these young boys performing at this level. It’s up 2 the club 2 keep them 4rm preying eyes of the bigger clubs. Should that be done, Arsenal will produce another invisible team that may even conquer Europe. I missed the flare of Martinelli vs Villa, I wish him speedy recovery. I wish well 4 Arsenal.
When the gaffer sign a marquee striker he will even looks and get better.
A marquee forward will take some of the focus and loads off Saka.
More of his passes will be converted.
So by extension he will gets more room to operate in.
