Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta believes Bukayo Saka has the rare quality to see things even clearer as he enters the final third. 

Saka continued with his fine form against Leicester City has his side settled for a 1-1 draw as he provided an assist. Arteta says he expects the youngster the youngsters’ quality to manifest itself in more goals having scored his first Premier League goal against Wolves over the weekend.

Asked if he was surprised by Saka’s transition after the Leicester game, Arteta said: “No. He’s really good.”

“Really accurate and very precise in the final third, the closer he gets to the box actually the picture is clearer for him. That’s why he’s made so many assists.”

“He will score a lot of goals because he has really good quality in terms of finishing with both feet. He’s learning a new position, had some difficulties but he read some situations really well, and was a threat.”

Saka penned a new long-term deal with Arsenal and his Tuesday’s assist saw him take his assist tally to 12 for the season after setting club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the game’s opener.
