The Three Stats That Confirm Nigerian Winger Was Arsenal's Most Dangerous Player On Home Debut
If statistics provided by OPTA are anything to go by, teenage Nigerian winger Bukayo Saka was Arsenal's most dangerous player against Qarabag FK, a game in which he made his home debut for the Gunners.

The Hale End Academy product was the stats leader for four performance indicators : shots, shots on target, dribbles, most fouled player.

Saka showed no fear playing against the Qarabag defense with an average age of 30.6 years and finished the match with a game-high eight dribbles, four more than the next player on the list, Eddie Nketiah who registered four take-ons.

Only Rangers' Ryan Kent with ten completed more take-ons than Saka in a Europa League match this season.

The 17-year-old also had a game-high four shots of which three were on target, more than the remaining twenty-seven players in action.

It's not surprising that Saka was the most fouled player after winning five free-kicks but most importantly he came out of the game unscathed.

With a rating of 8.19, he was Whoscored Player of the Match.
