Bukayo Saka caught the eye once again in Arsenal’s 4-0 win over Liverpool on Friday night, and he continues to impress at every academy level.

Arsenal breezed to victory over their Premier League 2 rivals in the end, even though it looked like they might have more trouble in the opening stages of the game. Liverpool started strongly, but quickfire goals from Eddie Nketiah and Saka gave the Gunners a 2-0 lead at half-time.

Liverpool tried to mount a comeback in the second half, but just couldn’t find the net, and eventually Joe Willock and Nketiah killed the game off with another couple of goals.

Saka scored the opening goal of the night, and set up Willock’s third, bringing his total to three goals and five assists in just nine appearances this season. That’s even more impressive when you consider he’s come off the bench a number of times.

Overall, he’s averaging a goal or assist every 52 minutes in 2018/19.

Saka’s academy appearances last season had been limited to the u18 Premier League, the FA Youth Cup and the u19 Dallas Cup. He impressed in all three competitions, but had to wait until the current campaign to get his first u23 chance.

When he got it, it took just nine minutes for him to get his first assist, setting up Stephy Mavididi against Manchester City. From there he’s pushed on, and is now a starter for the side.

Along with Eddie Nketiah, whose brace took him up to five goals in five academy games this season, Saka has a great chance of someday breaking into the first-team. He just needs to keep doing what he’s doing.

Here are the goals from the match (Saka is number 11):
