Mikel Arteta gives his reaction to the performance of Bukayo Saka and what Lacazette scoring meant for the whole team.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was in a very good mood following the impressive 4-0 win over Newcastle United and was more than happy to reveal his thinking behind some of the events in the humbling of the Geordies.
The Spaniard was very honest in his assessment of the first half, what he thought of the performance from 18-year-old Saka and what he felt about the reaction to Lacazettes goal.
I really enjoyed this short clip, it was rather revealing and the way that Arteta communicates so clearly is refreshing.

I thought Martinelli was our biggest prospect, but I am starting to think it’s Saka. I am loving this kid!
Saka is playing like a seasoned pro, and a quality pro at that, and LB isn’t even his natural position!
