“best younger” Watch how Thierry Henry and Jose Mourinho reaction to Baka Saka brilliant display against Tottenham
The Gunners began the contest on the front foot but the opening goal came through an unlikely source in Thomas Partey. The Ghanaian’s strike from the edge of the box was certainly fitting of the occasion.
Spurs quickly grew into the derby, however, and Arsenal looked vulnerable in transition. Eventually, the hosts were made to pay as Harry Kane converted from the penalty spot after the visitors broke in behind.
Bukayo Saka was an outstanding player to notice for the match against Tottenham
Bukayo Saka Caused Spurs all manner of problems down the right by constantly cutting in and looking to get a shot off. Created the second goal with this unstoppable approach.
Arsenal tried to isolate Saka against Ivan Perisic as much as possible and the ploy paid dividends at the start of the second half. His threat was ominous throughout.
That was a pulsating North London Derby with two completely contrasting styles. Arsenal were dominant with the exception of the fifteen minutes after the Spurs goal and thoroughly deserving of their victory. This performance was the perfect riposte to the pundits questioning the Gooners capacity to beat a top six rival.
Exactly what we have come to expect from the kid. Tormented the Spurs defence throughout and pulled the shape of their backline all over the place. As effective cutting in as going wide and his effort was directly responsible for the crucial second goal.
