‘One of the best, Lovely lad’: Some fans praise this Arsenal player after 2-0 win
Several Arsenal supporters took to social media to heap praise on one of the attackers who featured for the Gunners as they saw off Wolves 2-0 in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
Arsenal travelled to Wolves on Saturday, hoping to make it three wins in a row in all competitions, following the 2-1 win over Sheffield United in the FA Cup which was then followed by a 2-0 triumph away at Southampton in midweek.
Mikel Arteta decided to hand Bukayo Saka a more preferred role in the attack as he took over from Nicolas Pepe, who found the net from the penalty spot last weekend.
Saka has certainly not featured in an advanced position as much as he did earlier in the season under Unai Emery, and his performance on Saturday was a reminder that playing as an attacking midfielder is where he shines the most.
The youngster, who recently signed a new contract at the Emirates stadium, volleyed home a brilliant goal in the first half and his display on the day certainly won him some praises from the fans.

Can’t recall an 18 year old in the top leagues ever being as versatile as Bukayo Saka.
Made LB, CM, LW, RW & AM all look his natural positions despite playing under 25 games at the top level.

Watching Saka interview on Sky.
He speaks so well for an 18 year old. He just seems like a lovely lad.

The technical quality Saka has is perfectly summarised in that goal. The intelligence and movement to get into the position, adjusting his body after the deflection, and then the skill to keep the ball down on the volley.
Versatile, technically adept, energy to spare #WOLARS

So far this season Bukayo Saka has played:
– Left winger
– Left back
– Right winger
– Centre mid
– Left wingback
And he hasn’t looked out of place in any of them, such a class talent man 💉
