Much of the recent talk has concerned whether Bukayo Saka is world-class. Although some may argue he isn’t yet, his performance against Newcastle was more proof that one day he has to be in that category.

While he failed to make an impact against Porto, Saka was back to his old self at the Emirates and will surely be giving Tino Livramento nightmares for weeks to come.

He caused chaos on the wing and once again showed his unpredictability, looking comfortable coming short for the ball, beating his man in a one-on-one, engaging in a race to the byline, and putting in a cross.

The evening was topped off with what is quickly becoming the young forward's trademark finish, cutting onto his left foot and burying the ball into the far corner past an outstretched goalkeeper.

The goal means that it is now seven in five for Saka in the Premier League. Rio Ferdinand may not think he’s world-class, but he’s good enough for me.
