Arsenal

Stunning stat on landmark Arsenal game shows just how deadly Bukayo Saka is to Premier League teams

Bukayo Saka marked his landmark appearance by completing a perfect record against all the Premier League teams he’s faced.

The Arsenal star makes his 200th appearance for the Gunners, becoming the youngest Gunners player since Cesc Fabregas in 2008 to reach that figure, in their 4-3 win over Luton Town on Tuesday night.

In typical fashion, the England star made his presence felt as he laid on an assist for Gabriel Martinelli by playing the ball across the box for the Brazilian to slot home after good work by Gabriel Jesus to play a throw-in quickly to Saka.

That assist means that Saka has now scored or assisted against all 25 of the Premier League teams that he’s faced in his career.

For Saka, it has been a stunning season in which he has already racked up eight goals and 12 assists in 21 appearances

The England international’s assist for Martinelli was cancelled out just moments later as Gabriel Osho headed home from a corner to make it 1-1.

However, Gabriel Jesus managed to restore Arsenal’s lead just before half time as he headed home from Ben White’s cross.

Elijah Adebayo drew the game level once again just after the break after he beat David Raya in an aerial duel and headed home from a corner.

Raya endured another moment to forget as Ross Barkley slotted the ball underneath him, before Kai Havertz made it 3-3 on the hour-mark.

With the match seemingly heading to a draw, Declan Rice popped up in the 97th minute of the game to earn a 4-3 win and send Arsenal five points clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.
