The winger set up Gabriel Martinelli for the opening goal, before scoring twice himself. A strong 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace at the Emirates helped the Gunners lead the Premier League table with 8 points more than Man City.
Saka deserves to be one of the leading contenders for the Player of the Season and Young Player of the Season awards. Man City’s Erling Haaland also stands out, scoring 28 goals in just 26 Premier League games, 42 goals in 37 games across all competitions. Besides, Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard, attacking midfielder Kevin De Bruyne of Man City and Marcus Rashford of Man United.
But for Lineker, there is only one winner, which is Saka. The British legend commented: “2 goals and 1 assist. Bukayo Saka is unstoppable.
A great player. If he votes tomorrow, he’ll get one of my votes for the Player of the Year award.”
Saka is only 21 years old, has scored 12 goals and assisted 10 in 28 matches in the league this season.
