    No chance of a regression IMO. Especially in terms of assists, his decision making is already top class. Hits a ball so sweetly as well. Hope he starts against Fulham.

    Like any player he'll have his ups and downs and I'm sure at those moments some on here will slander him. Need to put in perspective, he's still so young but as you've pointed out he's top class so he may just consistently deliver.

    Is it just me or has Saka hardly kicked a ball since he singed that contract? Almost like he was given all those games be4 just to get him to sign and not leave.

    I have a question after seeing some people including him as a LWB on the matchday thread. Would he still be open to playing as a LB/LWB? I think he has played exclusively on the wing/midfield since he signed right?

    He would be such a weapon against the weaker teams, Niles for defensive stability against the top teams/wingers and Saka against defensive teams. But I don't know if his renewal was contingent on being used further up, I'd understand it somewhat since I think his future is on the wing but he would be very helpful on the current system, specially if one of Bellerin/AMN is sold.

    I don't think Arteta hasn't played him at LB since we started negotiating the extension with him. Can't be a coincidence, he must have asked to play further up the pitch (which is where he should be playing anyway).

    This LWB role would be perfect for him though because he switches to a CAM when we're attacking. Easiest route onto the pitch for him too in this formation, otherwise he'll be competing with both Pepe and Willian for RW.

    He's better as an attacker. Stop with this left-back nonsense.

    I agree but he's not gonna be playing much in this 3-4-3 formation. I'd rather see him on the pitch even at LWB.

    You have to love how he is being handled by Arteta. Genuinely excited to see his next performance, because you know they’ll be a moment of real quality to remember.

    I think they will convert him into a midfielder. David Silva style. Saka's intelligence and ability to play a killer pass would be very good between the lines. He'll ease him in nicely.

    Is it too early to say Mikel Knows?

    Yep, he's the one who really makes both goals, the first with his movement into the space between the lines and pass, the second one is just all his goal.

    I actually thought he was rather timid and looking a bit off the pace for the rest of the match, but he's the one who's made both goals.

    Uncharacteristically poor tonight, only the second bad game I've seen him have.

    This lad is a top player. Can play out wide or between the lines. He was the difference today.

    Clutch player man. He's meant for big things. When you pull off passes like that at that stage of the game wow

    Poor game in terms of overall play, but still made the biggest impact with the two pre-assists. Mark of a top player.

    One of his poorer games for us yet still played a crucial part in winning us the game. Quality talent. Arguably our most creative player at 18 years old.
