Stunning stat on landmark Arsenal game shows how deadly Bukayo Saka is

Published:


Bukayo Saka marked his landmark appearance by completing a perfect record against all the Premier League teams he’s faced.

The Arsenal star makes his 200th appearance for the Gunners, becoming the youngest Gunners player since Cesc Fabregas in 2008 to reach that figure, in their clash at Luton Town on Tuesday night.

In typical fashion, the England star made his presence felt as he laid on an assist for Gabriel Martinelli by playing the ball across the box for the Brazilian to slot home after good work by Gabriel Jesus to play a throw-in quickly to Saka.

That assist means that Saka has now scored or assisted against all 25 of the Premier League teams that he’s faced in his career.

For Saka, it has been a stunning season in which he has already racked up eight goals and 12 assists in 21 appearances.

The England international’s assist for Martinelli was cancelled out just moments later as Gabriel Osho headed home from a corner to make it 1-1.

However, Gabriel Jesus managed to restore Arsenal’s lead just before half time as he headed home from Ben White‘s cross.
