Negative #1: Bukayo Saka fatigue continues

Saka once again limped off the pitch after being substituted in the 64th minute, raising even more concern over the 22-year-old's fitness.

While his critics, of whom there appear to be many, suggest that he limps off to avoid embarrassment after a poor showing, any Arsenal fan or football fan with a shred of intelligence will tell you that he is continually playing despite nursing an injury.

After all, he did not withdraw from international duty to 'avoid embarrassment,' like some on social media would have you believe. Unfounded and ludicrous social media conspiracies aside, the sight of Saka limping off is a cause for sore eyes amongst Arsenal fans and continues to highlight a serious weakness in Arsenal's squad.

Despite the squad's astounding overall quality, there remains no adequate cover for the Englishman, except for Reiss Nelson, who has not shown himself to be at the required level. While Fabio Vieira appears untrusted by Arteta to play a significant role, especially on the wing.

The need for Arsenal to sign another winger as cover for Saka could not be clearer, but for now fans can only hope that Arsenal's star-boy can make it to the end of the season without injury. Especially with the latter stages of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) fast approaching.
