Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to express their adoration for Bukayo Saka and his efforts against Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday.
The 18-year-old started the game against the Clarets at left-back – a position that he had previously made six appearances in this season – and proceeded to deliver a fine 45-minute display.
Saka immediately stamped his mark on the game, whipping two fine deliveries into the box which deserved to be finished, such was the exquisite shape and pace on them.
He also completed one dribble and was fouled once, while completing 100% of his passes in a tidy display.
The teenager – who has three goals and five assists in all competitions this term – also admirably managed to play on despite taking a whack to the knee from Matt Lowton, while also appearing to hold his hip at one point.
However, the knocks took their toll on the youngster and he was unable to appear for the second-half, being replaced by Lucas Torreira with Grant Xhaka dropping in at left-back.
Let’s see what the Arsenal fans on Twitter have been saying about Saka…
