Arsenal blow: Bukayo Saka picks up injury during Nottingham Forest match after joining exclusive Premier League club

Bukayo Saka has etched his name into the Premier League history books during Arsenal’s latest outing.


Arsenal faced off with Nottingham Forest in a Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners headed into the game knowing that a win would take them back to the top of the Premier League, ahead of Manchester City.

And, at present, Arsenal are on course to do exactly that.

The north Londoners have been on top from the get-got and took less than five minutes to open the scoring.

Gabriel Martinelli switched play to Bukayo Saka before making a run into the box and heading in from a Saka cross.

Following his assist for the opener, it has been revealed that at aged 21 years and 55 days, Bukayo Saka is the third-youngest player to assist 20 goals in the Premier League.

The record holder is a former Arsenal man, Cesc Fabregas, who managed the feat just four days before his 20th birthday.

Wayne Rooney then takes second place, with Ryan Giggs and Trent Alexander-Arnold and 4th and 5th place.

Five of Saka’s assists have come in the 2022/23 Premier League season.

But it is not all good news for the winger, as he was replaced after 26 minute due to an issue with his ankle.
