After another exquisite performance, Michael Owen gave his flowers to the star Arsenal player.
Former Liverpool, Madrid, and Manchester United striker Michael Owen praises Bukayo Saka after another performance that seems to be ‘the regular.’
Arsenal had to garner a win against Everton, trying to get a 5-point lead from Manchester City in the table. The Gunners did it in flying fashion, 4-0, beating an Everton side that was playing park the bus every time Arsenal had the ball.
The scoring was opened up by Bukayo Saka, with an absolutely delicious finish, firing the ball near-post against England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. Saka used his right foot, which is his weak foot, but the starboy made it look easy!
Saka also continued by assisting Gabriel Martinelli for the second Arsenal goal before the end of halftime. tw0 goal contributions for the English international inside 45 minutes.
“It was a real bit of quality that broke the deadlock. Everything we associate Arsenal with. They probed. They tried.
Then, eventually, a little gap opened and they exploited it. Brilliant finish. Absolute brilliant finish from Saka’s right foot – Saka can go one or two ways, can’t he?! He can either take it on his left foot, or he realised Michael Keane is not even sniffing any danger.
He’s asking for the ball. He’s wanting it in this situation. Mykolenko is on the wrong side of him. But he knows he is his biggest danger. I love the way he turns. He uses his body to get between the ball and man, then the finish is exquisite with his right foot.”
Saka’s goal made it 10 on the season for the star, and the assist adds up to 9. Saka is pushing double digits for goals + assists this Premier League season. The last Arsenal player to do that was Alexis Sánchez in 2016-2017 (24 goals, 10 assists).
Arsenal’s amazing young star is proving to be one of the best youngsters in the world. Haaland may break the goal record this year, but Bukayo Saka’s performance should be one to note.
A legitimate argument to be made for Premier League Player of the Year.
