Community Shield: Saka Gets Very Good Ratings In Arsenal’s Win Vs Liverpool

Bukayo Saka was awarded with very good ratings in Arsenal’s win over Liverpool in Saturday’s Community Shield at Wembley stadium, Completesports.com reports.

The ratings which was compiled by Sky Sport, was for every Arsenal player that featured in the game.

Saka was one of Arsenal’s best performers in the win against Liverpool.

The 18-year-old provided a cross-field pass to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who finished off with a brilliant goal.

And following his impressive performance, Saka was rated eight out of 10 by Sky Sport.

He was one of four players (Aubameyang, Emiliano Martinez, Ainsley Maitland-Niles) who were rated eight. 

Commenting on Saka’s display Sky Sport wrote: “Seems to get better and better every time he plays. A great ball out to Aubameyang helped set up the goal and he should have had another assist when a perfectly-weighted pass led to Nketiah forcing Alisson into a smart save. Quieter after the break as Liverpool penned Arsenal inside their own half.”

Saka has now added the Community Shield to the FA Cup he won with the Gunners last season.

Arsenal player ratings vs Liverpool:

    Stop sharing news about English players! You intentionally make us feel like losers the more you tell us of their exploit!

  • Is Saka an English player? The boy has reiterated that though he was born and bred in England his heart is with Nigeria. I like Rohr to invite him to the next round of intenational games lets see how it goes

    • Are you not aware that he is already part of the present English U-21 team? The same team that extended an invitation to Ebere….. I don’t think NFF or Rohr has the power or authority to bind this guy with a rope and coerce him into SE camp.

      And it’s surprising sometimes the way some of us comment as if NFF and Rohr had not shown interest in him. Nobody can force him to play for Nigeria if he does not want to or if he says he is not ready.

      “…I like Rohr to invite him to the next round of international games..”

      Its so funny when people are clamouring for the immediate call-up of saka to the SE. How is it possible to invite an ineligible player to the national team…? Saka has already represented england u17 at the u17 WC and hence will require applying to FIFA for international switch…that’s a 12 months plus long process. The earliest any of them can represent us will be this time next year….just in time for 2022 AFCON and World Cup. Any of these children wey get sense, make e quickly go package in documents go submit for fifa headquarters now.

      But make fans dey calm down. What will be will be. If these guys will represent Nigeria, they eventually, will….but if not….all the best to them. But they should understand they need the SE more than the SE needs them. Imagine if Iwobi had represented england….he would long have been dumped off the 3 lions radar…but today he’s always one of the 1st names on every SE call up list and his international career and performances are even more glittering than when he’s playing at club level. Victor Moses wouldn’t have even smelt Euros not to talk of world cup if he had chosen England. Not with all his loan deals here and there….liverpool, westham, stoke, fenerbache, milan….but he’s a proud AFCON winner and 2 time WC participant today, thanks to the SE of Nigeria.
      As John Fashanu said a few days ago, these boys should learn from the mistakes of others and not make decisions they will live to regret. Once again…all the best to them. As for we the fans, its high time we focus on the players we have in our team now, rather than the players who are not there. The last time I checked, the players we have now are to a large extent the best and most competitive group of Nigerian players anywhere in the world.

    @Debo, I agree with you, Rohr should not approach Saka to avoid the usual embarrassment from uncommitted players . If Saka want to play for Super eagles, he knows who to do it , after all Iwobi is his close friend and former Arsenal team mate
