The coolness with how he took his goal was reminiscent of Henry.
I don’t like him at RW, his body positing is all wrong when he plays there.
LCM > LWB > LW > LB > RW
Have to agree, absolutely excellent finish but he doesn't look right on the right (no pun intended)
Well playing him in many positions really could affect his development next season he either have to be LW or AM.
Zidane would be proud with that finish
Great finish but I think in general he struggled a bit today. I'm not a big fan of him as a forward in a front 3, especially on the right. I think he is most effective on the left side of the pitch where he can combine with players, not sure on his best position to be honest, he's so versatile.
He obviously hasn't got enough sauce to play at RW yet, but as long as he scores and we win then he's one step closer to be able to master the position.
Great goal but doesn`t look comfortable on the right and actually had a very poor game apart from the goal. 47 per cent pass completion.
Guy can play as a goalie and still be world class.
He's much better on the left. I actually like him as a LWB tbh
Played out of position and looked lost but he worked things out for himself, scored and was solid. He's much better on the left but on the right, he was still as effective as Pepe and Nelson have been. He's just a baller and very articulate in his interview. Technique and intelligence. The legacy of Graham and Wenger being revived.
Think a fair bit of that was down to having no idea what page Cedric was on given it was his first start for the club. Agreed though that Saka still looks much worse when played on the right overall but if he needed to start there again vs LCFC then throwing Bellerin behind him would help settle him.
Managed to get his goal against arguably the best organised defence in the premiership on a half chance. Probably struggled more than he would on the left but just goes to show if you give him half a chance he'll take it.
Yeah but I also run east London.
What a talent. Is he eligible for England or do you guys need to compete with an African country?
Idk is Bukayo a traditional English name?
You framed the question wrongly. He's both eligible for England, and England does need to compete with an African country for his services, it's not X or Y.
The melting pot that England has somewhat become will see a lot of 'non traditional' first and surnames in the future.
It should be great for the national teams talent pool.
I imagine how Saka progress's over the next few years will determine which nation he selects.
Thank you for this. Nobody would have understood what @Dennis_Bergkamp_10 meant otherwise.
He was isolated out on the right. Still delivered when it mattered.
