Bukayo Saka joins Thierry Henry in exclusive club in Arsenal’s meeting with Man United

Arsenal star Bukayo Saka has, late on Sunday, etched his name ever further into the famed history books of the club.

This of course comes after the English international took his place centre stage in the headlines once more a short time ago.

Afforded a start in Arsenal’s crunch Premier League showdown with Manchester United, Saka dazzled from the off, en route to what could prove to be the most crucial of 3-2 victories at the Emirates.

Either side of Eddie Nketiah proving himself the hero courtesy of a match-winning brace, Arsenal’s star wide-man too found the net, in characteristically brilliant fashion:

And, in the process, Saka, as alluded to above, secured for himself a head-turning piece of history.

As confirmed by a series of sources on Sunday evening, the Hale End youth product has established himself as just the third Arsenal player in history to find the net in a trio of successive Premier League games against Manchester United.

The other two? Club legends Thierry Henry and Freddie Ljungberg.
