And midfielder Thomas Partey was quick to praise his winger after the win over the Hornets.
We all know what he’s doing. Partey told the media. “He is one of the best young players in the world right now.”
‘I think he’s doing a great job. I hope he stays with us for a long time and does what he can and tries to take this team far.”
And, speaking about the form of the Gunners, who are now in pole position for Champions League qualifying next campaign, the Ghanaian praised the mental toughness of those around him.
‘I think we are mentally strong. We want to go match after match and this is what we are doing. I hope we continue this way. We knew that coming here was not going to be easy. We try to give our best and try to control the game.”
‘In the end, we were able to score three goals. It’s hard here so we had to get by [the game] and give our best to get the three points. In the end that’s what we did.

If they could do it, there seems to be no better place for Saka to continue to thrive. But, in case they don’t, and the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City call on him, it might be hard for him to resist.
