Premier League: Aston Villa Stun Arsenal At The Emirates

Premier League: Aston Villa Stun Arsenal At The Emirates

Bukayo Saka scored an own goal as Arsenal went down to a 3-0 embarrassing defeat to Aston Villa at the Emirates on Sunday night.

The visitors might have been ahead after just 47 seconds when John McGinn’s strike was disallowed for offside upon VAR review with Ross Barkley deemed to have been in Bernd Leno’s eyeline.

Saka slotted Matt Targett’s cross into his own net in the 25th minute.

Ollie Watkins doubled the advantage in the 72nd minute.

He put the game beyond the hosts when he netted the third goal three minutes later.

The result moves Villa up to sixth in the table while Arsenal slip to 11th.

    Ever since Saka accepted Northgate’s invitation, he’s gone from super to mediocre. Is this down to pressure? The Saka that used to fly down the left flank and deliver quality passes and crosses has gone fishing. I can’t recognize this one we are seeing nowadays. Now that he is an England player, Saka can’t afford an extended period of mediocrity.
    The love and goodwill of 150 million people is no longer there for him, so Saka needs to rediscover his old form on his own. He needs to get back to his old ways, because England will dump the heck out of him. Ask Dele Alli.

      the guy just had a bad game at the office, this has nothing to do with him playing for England or refusing to join the SE..

      Besides every player goes through a rough patch..

      What I don’t like though is why we are being feed stories of players of different countries.. Like what does that got to do with us? Abi news finish for all eligible Nigerians worldwide

        This is COMPLETE SPORTS NIGERIA, not COMPLETE NIGERIAN FOOTBALL NIGERIA.
        A sports site with particular interest in Nigerian football, but other interesting sports news in general, including foreign football are very much within it’s purview.
        Your opinion about Saka is valid. That might be the case. However, it might also be that the guy is under intense pressure to live up to England standards week in, week out. That is a heavy load to carry, with all the scrutiny and criticism that comes with it.
        Also, could it be that he is facing disapproval from his family? Don’t know how true this is, but I heard that his father wanted him to chose Nigeria, and was unhappy that he didn’t. Pressures like these can affect someone’s performance. Not to talk of the knowledge that Nigerians at large are unhappy with him. It can take a big toll on a young lad. Here’s hoping he gets back to his old self in upcoming games.
