Jamie O'Hara says Arsenal have a 'fantastic' 20-year-old in their ranks
Arsenal star Bukayo Saka has been praised by Jamie O’Hara on the 90Min YouTube channel.
The Gunners and England ace has become an indispendable player for club and country over the past two years.
Saka is closing in on 100 competitive appearances for Arsenal and has won 11 caps for England, featuring at Euro 2020.
This season, the 20-year-old has made seven appearances for Mikel Arteta’s side, including five in the Premier League.
Admittedly, Arsenal struggled to find their feet in the league initially, losing their first three games.
However, the Gunners won their last two in the top flight, and go into this Sunday’s derby with Spurs on the back of a 3-0 midweek win in the Carabao Cup.
Saka is yet to get on the scoresheet in the league this season, but now he has the chance to break his duck against Arsenal’s bitter rivals.
Speaking ahead of the North London derby, O’Hara waxed lyrical about the attacking ace.
“I love Saka, I think he’s exciting,” he said. “He was fantastic at the Euros.
“Every time I watch him play I’m excited to see what he does with the football.”
O’Hara was speaking with Paul Merson, who replied: “I have to go with Saka.
“If Arsenal are going to have a chance in this game, he will have to play very, very well.”
