Reflecting on the recent high-stakes clashes in the Premier League, Saka stressed the necessity of giving their all in every game, treating each match as a final.

“Each team, or most of the teams, have something to play for. Each game is like a final for all of us competing for the title, especially Sunday. With it being a north London derby as well, it’s going to be even bigger as a game. I’m just focused on performing.”


Addressing concerns over physicality on the pitch, Saka highlighted his resilience and growth as a player, asserting his readiness to endure challenges from opposition defenders. Despite facing rough treatment throughout the season, he remains undeterred, focusing on his role in the team and maintaining his attacking prowess.

“I feel like I’m physically much stronger than I was four or five years ago. For each tackle.

“I have more experience in terms of which ones to go for and which ones to jump, to try to avoid a big tackle. So I’m much smarter as well as physically stronger than I was.”

Acknowledging the significance of the derby to himself, his family, and Arsenal fans, Saka emphasised the broader context of the match within the Premier League title race. With crucial points on the line, he highlighted the team’s collective goal of securing victory and staying focused amidst the intensity of the rivalry.
