Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta explained, after the victory at Turf Moor, how he has helped Bukayo Saka become so deadly in front of goal. The winger grabbed another brace for the second weekend running yesterday.

Mikel Arteta’s side made it five Premier League wins in a row to begin the calendar year for the first time in the club’s history. Club captain, Martin Odegaard opened the scoring from the ‘Ø zone’ while Bukayo Saka struck either side of half-time to give the Gunners a comfortable lead.

Leandro Trossard and Kai Havertz also got on the score sheet to finish off a stylish display for Arsenal for the second week in a row. Mikel Arteta’s side are on top form right now at such a crucial stage of the season and Bukayo Saka is at the heart of it.

The Gunners were struggling in front of goal at the end of 2023, however two months on and it’s a completely different story. Arsenal have scored 21 goals over their last five Premier League games, which has seen them improve their goal difference to the best in the league.

Bukayo Saka himself has already surpassed his tally in all competitions from last season. In 2022/23 the 22-year-old recorded 26 goal contributions, where as this season he’s already got 27 goals & assists.

The winger has gone up another level, and when asked about his improvement, Mikel Arteta said: “We tried with our players to make them unpredictable and I’m sure the opponents are looking at us a lot, and we have to find ways to create them problems.

“He’s [Bukayo Saka] got this ability and he trains a lot in many different situations in and around the box, and today he had two brilliant finishes again.”

Mikel Arteta’s side remain in the Premier League title race, as well as the Champions League knockout stages. If Arsenal are to win either competition this season then there’s no doubt Bukayo Saka will have to continue the great form he’s shown already up to this point.
