Mikel Arteta worked closely with Raheem Sterling at Manchester City, and has been asked if Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka has similar qualities.
The interviewer claims that the last thing that was needed to be added to the City forward’s game was goals, which Saka has been doing of late, and claims that his importance to our attacking play means he should no longer play at left-back.
While we aren’t expecting Saka to return to LB, Tierney being out could lead to other players needing to offer up their services in the role, and Arteta refuses to rule out playing him there if needed.
