'If I'm honest': Campbell says Arsenal star just put in one of his best displays of the season at Old Trafford

Arsenal finally fell to their first defeat of the season at the weekend, losing 3-1 to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Debutant Antony scored his first United goal, before Marcus Rashford scored a brace.

Bukayo Saka briefly made the score 1-1 and Kevin Campbell has commented on his performance, speaking to The Highbury Squad.

Campbell believes that Saka produced one of his best displays of the season on Sunday.

“Not every time you’re going to be as productive as you should be.” Campbell said.

“For me, I thought Saka had one of his best games of the season if I’m honest.

“I thought he was direct, he was cutting inside and linking play up. I thought he did well to score the goal.

“Can he be more productive? Yes, of course he can.

“I thought he was pretty direct, and I thought he was quite good.”

Saka produced one of his best displays of the season

Bukayo Saka has just turned 21, but has already achieved so much in his short career.

He was a pivotal member of the England squad that reached the European Championships final.

Saka has bounced back brilliantly from the pain of missing a decisive penalty in that shootout.

He’s also already won an FA Cup and a Community Shield, as well as played more than 130 games for Arsenal.

The right winger is one of the first name’s on Mikel Arteta’s teamsheet, and has produced several great performances already this season.

Before the match against Man United, Roy Keane was singing Saka’s praises and it’s no surprise why.

The young man put defender Tyrell Malacia through his paces, beating him on several occasions.

Frustrating ended up getting the better of Saka, who was booked for a foul on the Dutchman.

Campbell also pointed out that Saka needs to be more productive, and there were certainly opportunities for him to do so.

However, it was still one of Saka’s best displays of the season.

It would be a big surprise if Arteta left him out of his Arsenal team any time soon.
