Redknapp hails Arsenal’s Saka


Former Liverpool Midfielder, Jamie Redknapp has hailed the exploits of Bukayo Saka after his first Arsenal goal in yesterday’s win.

“To a certain extent today wasn’t what we usually associate with Arsenal, they were dogged, really good defensively and they’ve got that little bit of quality as well when Lacazette comes on, I’m so pleased for that young man, Saka. He’s a joy to watch. He’s loving the Premier League. New contract. As he said, what a week for him. It’s a really good finish. Aubameyang is heavily involved, he knows exactly where he is on the pitch, plays it out wide and you just see again at the back post, Saka drops his shoulder [to get into space]. He has a swing at it, it’s not necessarily conventionally the best volley you’ll ever see but it’s a really good one, and it works for him. He guides it away from the keeper, it’s a nice strike. It’s just one of those but it’s good technique” Redknapp said.
