Bukayo Saka

The English prodigy showed the exact signs that made the club band him the number 7 shirt especially against Chelsea. He started on the right-wing against the Blues and scored the Gunners’ third goal against their bitter London rivals. He was also among the goals as he set up Lacazette for the summer against Brighton.


Kieran Tierney
