‘He is incredible’, ‘So much talent’: Some fans praise Arsenal star after 3-2 win
A number of Arsenal supporters took to social media to heap praise on one of the defenders who featured for the Gunners on Sunday as they overcame a very stern test to defeat Everton 3-2 in the Premier League.
Following the hard-fought 1-0 win in Greece on Thursday night, the Gunners had a big game in the Premier League to take care of as they welcomed a resurgent Everton side to the Emirates stadium.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta initially decided to hand Bukayo Saka a rest as Sead Kolasinac made his first start since returning from an injury.
However, the ex-Bundesliga star was replaced by Saka after only 19 minutes and what followed was another solid display from Arsenal’s makeshift left-back.
The promising youngster registered his tenth assist of the season as his brilliant cross was met by Eddie Nketiah, who netted the equalizer after Everton had taken a very early lead.
Following another fine show, Saka was hailed by the Arsenal faithful on Twitter…
Saka is incredible, what a ball and what a finish from Nketiah. We better tie him down to a new deal man, will never forgive the club if we lose another top talent

Saka genuinely might be top 1 youngster in the league this season

Yo Bukayo Saka has more assists than Andy Robertson. If you think I’m going to get ahead of myself and suggest that Saka is the best LB in the league then you would be absolutely correct. Let me say that again. An 18 year old winger is the best LB in the league. Unreal this kid.
