4. Bukayo Saka
Another game, another goal contribution for Bukayo Saka. Our starboy is developing a ruthless trait of contributing to goals every single game, no matter what. Saka could have had a hat-trick had he taken the two penalties but he’ll be more than happy with the one goal.
His consistency is off the charts and his intelligence on the pitch is so clear to see. He is the one player on the team that I would not trade for anyone else in the world and it’s a massive that he came from Hale End.
It is now five goals and four assists in nine games for the winger in what has been supposedly a slow start to the season. Just imagine what he’s going to do when he starts playing ‘well’!
It is also worth mentioning that this was Kai Havertz’s best performance in an Arsenal shirt. With every game, Arteta’s plan regarding the German seems more clear to me and hopefully, the goal will give Kai the confidence he needs. Whatever is said online, he clearly has the support of his teammates and match-going fans. I’m more and more convinced he will become a huge asset to this Arsenal team.
Onto next week which could prove massive for the Gunners with a Champions League game midweek and a City game next weekend, who will be without Rodri. They will be there for the taking at the Emirates.
