The 19-year-old has made three league appearances for Arsenal this season, starting against West Ham, Sheffield United and Manchester City.

Against the Hammers, Saka was key for both of the Gunners’ goals, providing key passes for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Dani Ceballos to then set up Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah.
