Incredible photo shows how scared Man City were of Saka during Arsenal win

An incredible photo has emerged of Bukayo Saka bearing down on the Manchester City goal with seven City players in the frame.

Saka was a nuisance for the City defence all afternoon, and he kicked the game off with a cutely taken strike.

However, he was hapless to stop City from turning the game around, with Rodri claiming the three points in the 93rd minute.

For the first 45 minutes, Arsenal were brilliant, and Saka was at the helm of everything with the image showing City trying their best to nullify the England star.

But, during the second half, the Gunners imploded with a mad five-minute spell that turned the tide of the game as a penalty was awarded to the visitors before Gabriel was sent off.

Saka has been in a rich-vein of form lately, and his latest goal caused Arsenal fans to claim he's turned into an 'Arjen Robben regen'.

And speaking on BT Sport ahead of the game, Martin Keown tipped Saka to prove himself against the champions: “If I was a young player in that Arsenal team I’d be dying to play against this team [City], to prove they belong at this level.

“Arsenal have a collection of them now, Martinelli, Saka, Odegaard playing in there and Smith Rowe on the bench.

"A really good group of youngsters that are building something big and a young manager and there’s a unity here in the stadium."

Arsenal felt aggrieved towards referee Stuart Attwell, due to two penalty decisions.

The Gunners felt they deserved a spot-kick when Ederson appeared to take down Martin Odegaard, but VAR ruled there was insufficient evidence to tell Attwell to take a second look.

However, when Granit Xhaka brought down Bernardo Silva in the second half, Attwell did go over to the pitch-side monitor.

That spot-kick, which was converted, eventually led to a red card for Gabriel and Rodri's winner.
