Saka has 12 assists in all competitions, meaning he’s behind only Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne and Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold in the assist stats of Premier League-based players.

Given that De Bruyne has long been one of the finest creative players in the world in an all-conquering City team and Alexander-Arnold is an exceptional attack-minded full-back for Premier League champions Liverpool, this is some achievement by Saka.

The England youth international has also played a lot of games as a full-back himself, slotting in well on the left for a few matches earlier this season.

Wherever he plays, Saka seems to make a real impact, and Arsenal fans will be thrilled their academy has been able to produce such a superb young talent.
