ENGLAND STAR IMPRESSES IN ARSENAL WIN
England international star Bukayo Saka was again the standout player for Arsenal during their latest league win, a 1-0 victory over hosts Brighton and Hove Albion. The England attacker was named the man-of-the-match for his impressive display during the week 16 league clash at the home of the Seagulls. Bukayo Saka was instrumental for Arsenal as he helped the North Londoners secure a second successive league victory in the space of three days. Arsenal struggled during a first half which ended in a goalless draw and would go on to improve in the second half courtesy the immense qualities from the young England duo of Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith-Rowe.
Bukayo Saka went on a fantastic runafter picking the ball up at the halfway line before providing a pinpoint cross for second half substitute Alexandre Lacazette to score the only goal of the game. Frenchman Lacazette scored the winning goal of the game shortly after coming on as a substitute for Brazilian attacker Gabriel Martinelli.
Bukayo Saka was the man responsible for the deadlock that was broken by French international Alexandre Lacazette. The England international has provided more assists for Arsenal in all competitions since the start of the last campaign than any other player in the Gunners squad. Bukayo Saka has provided 15 assists in the colours of Arsenal since the beginning of last season. The result recorded against Brighton and Hove Albion took their latest victory run to two games after the London Derby win over Chelsea at the weekend.
Three Lions of England player Bukayo Saka was also the star of the show during that Chelsea win at the Emirates Stadium at the weekend. He scored one goal and provided another assist as the Gunners beat their London rivals to end their winless run spanning seven matches.
