'Saka Is A Player Going From Strength To Strength' -  Arsenal Hero Keown Hails Versatile Young Star
Bukayo Saka put in a stellar display as Arsenal hammered Newcastle United 4-0 in a Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening.

The versatile Anglo-Nigerian fullback set up the second goal scored by the Gunners, beating Valentino Lazaro with a nutmeg before crossing for Nicolas Pépé to slot home.

Arsenal hero Martin Keown was impressed with the performance of the Hale End Academy product and reckons that the teenager is playing beyond his years.

Speaking on BBC's Match of the Day, Keown said : "Saka, the young kid, 18, he is of age, look at this for a bit of confidence the way he plays it through his opponents legs.  Little nutmeg, out the other side, beautiful, he picks outs Pepe who has come alive actually today.

"He (Pepe) has been accused of staying out wide too often but he comes in and it was beautiful to watch....

"It may have flattered them a little bit 4-0 but Saka is a player going from strength to strength. "

In 24 outings for the Gunners first team so far this season, Saka has been involved in 11 goals (3 goals, 8 assists).
