Impressive Bukayo Saka stat emerges after Chelsea 0-Arsenal 1

Bukayo Saka provided an assist in Arsenal’s clash with Chelsea.

Arsenal faced a trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday, looking to see off London rivals, Chelsea.

Arsenal headed into the game knowing they needed to win to regain top spot in the Premier League after Manchester City beat Fulham on Saturday.

It was not the most spectacular affair, but the Gunners deserved the win.

Mikel Arteta’s side pressed well, exploiting the poor distribution of Edouard Mendy, who was in the Chelsea net in place of the injured Kepa.

And whilst goals continue to elude Gabriel Jesus, Arsenal came away with a 1-0 win on the day.

Bukayo Saka floated a corner past three Chelsea players, which was then stabbed home by Gabriel Magalhaes.

Following his assist to Gabriel Magalhaes against Chelsea, Bukayo Saka now has 6 assists in the 2022/23 Premier League — that’s the most assists by an U21 player in the top 5 European leagues this season.

Given Saka’s superb form this season so far, he looks a shoo-in for a starting spot at the 2022 World Cup, with Jadon Sancho – another right-wing option for England, still struggling in Manchester.
