Bukayo Saka is one Arsenal player  historicaly would discribed as the Invincible



Arsenal’s rise as title contenders this season has been meteoric. The building blocks created by boss Mikel Arteta and sporting director Edu have made Arsenal feel like giants again.

There’s a strong backbone, starting with goaltender Aaron Ramsdale. They have recruited well but also developed from within, players who understand the culture of the club and who touch the hearts of the supporters.

No one sums it up better than Bukayo Saka. Saka was immense in Sunday’s 3-2 win over Manchester UBukayo Saka is one Arsenal player  historicaly would discribed as the Invinciblenited. He is currently the only player to join the 2003-04 Invincibles squad. The way he drives past defenders reminds me of my old favorite Marc Overmars.

Initially used by Arteta in the Europa League, like Emile Smith Rowe, Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah, Saka now has the world at his feet. His work ethic is contagious, as is his smile. It has the tricks of Phil Foden and the pace of Marcus Rashford in one. It’s a unique skill set and it’s as hard as teak to walk.

He totally destroyed Luke Shaw, England’s best left-back and himself in good form. He could hit it on the line or slice inside where he scored a thunderous goal from 25 yards out and later hit the post with the exact same execution.

He is an England regular with three goals at the 2022 World Cup and has missed just one step all season. He started well and came back from Qatar with his chest out and his feet dancing. It’s clear that Gareth Southgate thinks highly of Saka’s character and ability, and we can all understand why.
Obviously Saka is not alone. It started with Ramsdale in goal, the solidity of the superb Gabriel, William Saliba and Ben White flanked by the precise pass of Oleksandr Zinchenko who pierced the opposing defence. In midfield, Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka patrol and dominate the center of the pitch. Martin Odegaard, kidnapped by Real Madrid and masterfully awarded the armband by Arteta, continues to develop and create openings for the dangerous three up front.

Arsenal take on rivals Manchester City in the FA Cup on Friday night, where Pep Guardiola’s side will experience first-hand the talent and energy they possess.
Get ready for what promises to be an exciting encounter between the two best sides in the Premier League, both in the running for the domestic double and with squads brimming with confidence and ability.
