 'The Technique Was Brilliant' - Man Utd Legend Hails Saka For Smashing Finish Vs Wolves
Arsenal lead at the Molineux Stadium in their ongoing game against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League, courtesy of a smashing finish from Bukayo Saka, same week he signed a new deal with the Gunners.

Two minutes before half-time, Saka netted his first-ever Premier League goal, firing past Rui Patricio after a ball was whipped across the box by Kieran Tierney.
 
Having criticized Saka earlier in the game for not being at his best , former Manchester United defender Phil Neville, who was on commentary duties for the Premier League world feedsang a different tune by hailing the inverted winger for his brilliant strike.

Phil Neville stated : "That was a brilliant finish, we said he wasn't having the best of games five minutes ago.

"Switch of play from Cedric Soares into Aubameyang, he knew that Tierney was outside him, didn't even need to look.

"The ball came into the box early, slight deflection, that's a brilliant finish from the young boy.

"Deflection on the cross just set up really nicely for him, that's the benefit of playing on this right-hand side when you are left-footed. The technique was brilliant, watched it, Patricio no chance."

The 18-year-old Saka opened his goalscoring account in the Premier League after 23 matches and logged 1,490 minutes.
