Manchester United and Arsenal clashed on Sunday in a Premier League match.

Arsenal headed into the game needing three points to restore their lead atop of the table.

And when all was said and done, Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah helped Arsenal to a 3-2 win.

Following the game, Bukayo Saka has been discussing his friendship with Matt Turner, who joined Arsenal from New England this past summer:

He said: “I was very disappointed [that I didn’t score] actually! We actually spoke about that before and he said I’m not allowed to score against him so I guess his wish came true. “Matt is a top guy. I love speaking to him. He’s so funny. He teaches me some American slang words. Every time I see him, I just go ‘You straight?’ and he says it back to me [laughs].”

Elsewhere on the Saka front, United legend Roy Keane claimed that the Hale End graduate is now good enough to find a place at any of Europe’s leading clubs.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the Gunners’ victory over Manchester United, the Irishman said: “The key for the player himself is that he [Saka] looks like he goes out and enjoys the game. “He looks like a really nice lad away from the game which always helps but when he’s playing, he can beat a man. When you’re playing for the big clubs you need one or two players that can beat a man because that changes the picture in football matches.

“I like everything about him. I think he can go and play for any of the big clubs in Europe and play for them and I’m including Real Madrid in that. “I think he’s that good. I think he’s fantastic. What a talent. I love watching him.”
