Premier League

Saka becomes the second youngest player in Arsenal's history to reach 50 appearances

Arsenal's core since Arsene Wenger took over the club in the late 90s was giving young players a chance to show their worth. Samir Nasri, Robin Van Persie, Cesc Fabregas and more were Examples from thus brilliant philosophy.

Arteta seems to be hell bent on carrying on this fantastic tradition. With players like Emile Smith-Rowe, Edward Nketiah, Reis Nelson and Bukayo Saka.

Saka made his 50th Premier League appearance for the club at just the age of 19 years and 182 days. In just over one season for the club, he has become, not just their brightest sparks, but also one of their most prolific and important players.

So far this season, he has scored 5 goals and set up 2 more in 22 starts in tbe Premier league. The stats don't do his performances any justice. He has played in all the positions he is good at and has had to bail the team out of tight situations on several occasions.

His is definitely the future of the club and his 50 appearances are just the beginning.
