Arsenal fans pleased with Bukayo Saka after positive cameo against Leeds

Arsenal fans have praised Bukayo Saka on social media, after the youngster made a great impact against Leeds United.

The game finished 0-0 at Elland Road, with the Gunners arguably very fortunate to leave with a point.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side created many chances during the 90 minutes and could easily have won the game.

Arsenal struggled against the newly promoted side, who struck the woodwork three times, and their cause wasn’t helped when Nicolas Pepe was sent off for a headbutt on Gjanni Alioski.

The Ivorian winger felled the Macedonia international in an off-the-ball incident, and referee Anthony Taylor gave him his marching orders after reviewing the pitchside monitor.

Mikel Arteta can be pleased to have come away with a draw, but he now has some serious work to do with the team again struggling in the final third.

Willian and Pepe were both poor in West Yorkshire, and it seems fans are ready to see something different going forwards.

Saka replaced Joe Willock, and was arguably Arsenal’s liveliest player in the entire match.

The 19-year-old was always a threat, and had a brilliant chance to steal the points for his side but for a fine save from Ilan Meslier.

The only negative was that he actually left the action just before the end of the game due to injury, and fans will hope it is nothing too serious.

 

Saka came in for huge praise on social media for his vibrant showing:
