Arsenal have come up short in their fixture with Manchester City this evening, losing 1-0 at The Etihad Stadium. A solitary goal from Raheem Sterling in the first-half secured all three points for Pep Guardiola’s side and Arsenal have now lost their second game of the season, following a previous loss to Liverpool.
It was a disappointing result from Arsenal, with City deserving the win with a confident display despite the absence of Kevin De Bruyne.
However, it was not all doom and gloom for Arsenal fans. There were some impressive displays from several Arsenal players and fans online were quick to point one of them out.
Bukayo Saka, in particular, had Arsenal fans impressed.
The youngster has recently been on international duty with England for the first time and it does not seem to have impacted him negatively.
Saka was one of Arsenal’s best players, constantly trying to push the envelope with a bold display and toward the end of game remained one of Arsenal’s biggest threats as they chased an equaliser.
Here is some of the best reaction from Arsenal fans to Saka’s display against City…
Saka looks like the most experienced player in this team. He’s the diamond in this team

Well, with the exception of Saka who has tried really hard, we still have no creativity and our midfield is weak.

Bukayo Saka is phenomenal man. Literally has the ability to change the game at 18 years old

Call me crazy, but Saka is the best youngster itl.
Its not being reactionary, hes just perfect. Can play everywhere and still performs, he can do everything. Doesn’t even have a weak foot.
Put him in goal, and he would get more clean sheets than Kepa.
