‘What a special player’,’Been so good’: Some fans praise this Arsenal man after win
Several Arsenal supporters took to social media to heap praise on the Gunners’ left-back after the 2-1 win over Bournemouth in the FA Cup on Monday.
After registering no victories across all competitions since the 1-0 triumph over Leeds, the Gunners finally got back to winning ways on Monday as a fairly comfortable display saw them defeat Bournemouth 2-1 on the road.
The match saw Mikel Arteta hand Bukayo Saka another start at left-back, largely due to the youngster’s promising form and of course, the unavailability of Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac.
Ever since the manager’s decision to move him to left-back, Saka has produced a string of solid displays and that certainly continued on Monday night against the Cherries.
The teenager opened the scoring after just five minutes with a thunderous strike which set the Gunners on their way to a relatively comfortable win at the Vitality stadium.
Thus, a number of fans had nothing but plaudits for him after the final whistle…
Saka has been so good under Arteta. I have a feeling players have a much better chance of reaching their full potential under a coach like Arteta than some one like Mourinho #BOUARS

Can't believe the amount of talent Saka has. What a special player!

Bukayo Saka has 3 goals and 8 assists playing a lot of a time at left-back. Out of position. We keep talking about Greenwood and Martinelli, as most promising PL talents, but everyone is sleeping on Saka. Deserves more respect. Baller! ⚽️🅰️

Bukayo Saka has 11 G+A already, on course to finish on 15+. Fantastic numbers. To think that he still hasn’t been officially promoted to the first-team! Meteoric rise.

Bukayo Saka should do everything possible to remain a left back. He could be one of the worlds best #Arsenal
