Arsenal fans drool over Bukayo Saka’s goal-scoring performance at Bournemouth

Having made his breakthrough under Unai Emery, Bukayo Saka seems to be continuing in the same vein of form under recently-appointed head coach Mikel Arteta.

The 18-year-old made a total of 15 appearances across all competitions under Arteta’s predecessor, scoring once and providing a further four assists. And whilst a new manager coming in may have seen him fade out of the spotlight, Saka has appeared to kick on another level.

Playing at left-back against Bournemouth in the FA Cup fourth round on Monday night, the academy product scored one and made one.

And after seeing his display, Arsenal fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the winger.

A couple of supporters of the north London side felt Saka could be the new Ashley Cole.

A couple of fans compared Saka to Arsenal’s current left-back options, with one supporter in particular insisting he is “way better than” Kieran Tierney.

What a meteoric rise Saka has enjoyed this season. The fact the teenager is still continuing to shine in an unfamiliar role at left-back really goes to show his commitment to the cause. As is the case with modern football, young players nowadays get the world handed to them in terms of money.

But Arsenal’s academy product appears to have his priorities in order, and is showing signs of major development under both Emery and now Arteta. And with Tierney and Sead Kolasinac still out injured, you wouldn’t bet against Saka nailing down the first-team spot at left-back.

Meanwhile, this Arsenal starlet has been tipped to follow in the footsteps of Ronaldo.
