Bukayo Saka

Nigerian attacker Bukayo Saka is having the time of his young football career after setting a new record during the Premier League clash between Manchester United and Arsenal on Monday night.

The Arsenal forward was given a second successive start by manager Unai Emery for the away game against the Red Devils and he didn’t disappoint as he was one of the best players on the pitch.

The start meant that he’s now the youngest player to be named in the starting lineup for the Premier League clash involving Arsenal and Manchester United.

Bukayo Saka marked his record-breaking appearance with an assist for the goal scored by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the second half.

It was his first assist for Arsenal in the Premier League.

The Arsenal goal on 58 minutes was awarded via VAR after assistant referee Scott Ledger had flagged up goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for offside.

Aubameyang’s strike cancelled out the first half goal scored by Manchester United via the deflected shot from young Scotland international midfielder Scott McTominay.

It was his seventh goal in the Premier League this season and that made him the joint second topscorer in the race for the Golden Boot.

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero leads the way with eight goals.
