Bukayo Saka made history on Monday by becoming the youngest player ever to start in a Premier League game between Arsenal and Manchester United.
He wasted no time in underlining his vast potential, proving a constant menace and claiming an assist for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Unai Emery, Arsenal’s Manager is delighted with the 18-year-old, and says he is getting better all the time.
“I think he’s working and improving, being mature and also playing matches in front of each player and each team as tonight against Manchester United,” our head coach said.
“But his work is natural and he is improving. He is helping us now as an important player.
“We are going to work with him with him with calm, with patience, but if he deserves to take minutes and to take confidence for helping us with his performance, that is fantastic for us.”
Former Arsenal defender, Martin Keown said Bukayo Saka looked like he was the club’s record signing against Manchester United, and not Nicolas Pepe.
The 18-year-old set up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the Gunners’ equaliser in their 1-1 draw against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men on Monday .
Saka made his fourth appearance of the season against Man Utd on Monday night.
In his second consecutive Premier League start he registered an assist as Arsenal drew 1-1.
Record signing Pepe, meanwhile, failed to impress and was taken off before Saka
