The ace, still just 22, hasn’t looked back since making his debut for the club in 2018.
Even at such a young age, Saka is the Gunners’ go-to man in attack and if the club are to end their wait for a Premier League title this season he’ll have to be at his very best to do so.
Saka scored again in the Gunners’ 2-1 win against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday, with the winger finishing off a rapid counter-attack.
The goal was Saka’s tenth goal of the season, and means he’s provided 20 goal contributions across all competitions this term.
Incredibly, Saka provided 10+ goals and 10+ assists at the age of 21 last season, meaning he’s achieved the feat in back-to-back seasons.
Remarkably, Saka is the first player since Alexis Sanchez to do so.
The Chilean did it in three consecutive seasons from 2014 to 2017, following his move to the club from Barcelona.
Last season, Saka was the first Arsenal player to reach 10 goals and assists in a season since Sanchez.
But the Englishman has now matched Sanchez by doing it in consecutive seasons.
