Gary Lineker has taken to Twitter to heap praise on Bukayo Saka, after he helped Arsenal record a 3-1 win over Southampton at St Mary’s yesterday.
Saka also notched his fourth assist of the campaign, drilling the ball low across goal for Alexandre Lacazette to tap home.
It was a truly brilliant performance – you can see what Lineker thought of it below.
Young @BukayoSaka87 has been terrific again tonight. Great talent. 🙌🏻— Gary Lineker 💙 (@GaryLineker) January 26, 2021
The electric teenager still had a tremendous game, even if you were to take away his goal involvements.
As WhoScored shows, Arsenal’s No.7 recorded two shots, two key passes and also embarked on two dribbles against Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men.
Saka was also fouled twice last night, and completed one cross as well as one long-range pass.
It was an all-action display from the England international, who is genuinely getting better and better with each game he plays.
Mikel Arteta has a real gem of a footballer on his hands in Saka, and one who is in a rich vein of form.
The Hale End academy graduate has now scored four goals in his last six Premier League games, while also grabbing two assists in that time too.
