Martin Keown says Arsenal’s ‘outstanding talent’ is not at his best yet

Martin Keown has given his verdict on Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka after watching him in action against Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium.

The Arsenal legend and TNT Sports pundit does not think that Saka is at his best yet.

So, what has Martin Keown said about Bukayo Saka? Let’s take a look.

Martin Keown comments on Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka
Well, Arsenal took on Crystal Palace in the London derby this past weekend. The Gunners beat the Eagles 5-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

Bukayo Saka is one of the first names on the Arsenal teamsheet, and the winger started on the right of a three-man attack in a 4-3-3 formation.

The 22-year-old England international winger was not always influential and was slightly quiet by his high standards.

Saka did set up the second goal for Arsenal and helped out in defence, but he could have done better going on the attack.

Arsenal legend Martin Keown was following the match for TNT Sports, and while he was impressed by the display produced by Saka, he does not think that the winger is at his best yet.

Keown said about Saka on TNT Sports 1 (2:52 pm, January 20, 2024): “I think the variations to Arsenal’s play would be nice. He has got to try and find solutions. I would like to see the full-back getting around him rather than inside of him, getting outside of him, which gives him a bit more space.

“Nonetheless, he is an outstanding talent and I think he will return to his form. I don’t think he is quite at the top yet, but without rest, it would certainly help.”

My View: Bukayo Saka remains a massive player for Arsenal
In my opinion, Bukayo Saka is one of the best and most important players for Arsenal. I believe that the 22-year-old will play a massive role for the Gunners in the coming weeks and months. He is one of the best young players around.

Arsenal are aiming to win the Premier League title this season, and Saka will be a key figure for the North London club if they are to become champions of England.

Saka has scored six goals and given six assists in 20 Premier League matches for Arsenal this season. The winger has scored three goals and provided four assists in five UEFA Champions League games for the North London club.
