Bukayo Saka was undoubtedly one of the stand-out Arsenal stars as they romped to a four nil win over Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon and his stats back that up.
Arsenal put four past Steve Bruce’s Newcastle without reply after what had been a quite turgid first half.
The second, however, was something else completely.
Goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (assist Pepe), Nicolas Pepe (assist Saka), Mesut Ozil (assist Lacazette) and Alexandre Lacazette (assist Nicolas Pepe), meant that Arsenal not only claimed their most comfortable victory in some time, but they moved to a positive goal difference as well.
Bukayo Saka's game by numbers vs. Newcastle:
91% pass accuracy
38 passes completed
6 take ons
1 *outrageous* assist 😉
An outstanding display from the 18-year-old. 🙌 pic.twitter.com/5xvQsTXRkb
