Bukayo Saka was once again named Man of the Match for his performance, this time against Brighton on Tuesday but the forward left the pitch with an injury we will all be hoping isn’t too bad.
Saka was named Man of the Match against Chelsea on Boxing Day and followed that up with another excellent performance against Brighton to help Arsenal to back-to-back league wins for the first time since the opening two matches.
The only player to hit 8 in the Fotmob ratings, Saka was also named Man of the Match by Amazon Prime who were showing the match.
In addition to setting up Alexandre Lacazette’s goal which was the difference between the sides he also won all his tackles (2), more of his duels than he lost (8 v 6), recovered the ball four times and played three key passes.

Speaking after the game, Mikel Arteta told Amazon, “To come here and get another win is massively important. As well I think we did it in a convincing way.
“In the second half we played much better and in the Premier League you have to hang on for a few minutes. But proud for the boys and happy with the result.”
Next up for Arsenal is Big Sam’s West Brom who were stuffed 5-0 by Leeds as Arsenal dispatched the Seagulls.
