Bukayo Saka just broke a 46-year Arsenal record by doing one thing in West Ham win

Bukayo Saka notched his 50th goal for Arsenal during their match against West Ham United on Sunday. The Arsenal winger converted a penalty in the first half, putting his team 2-0 ahead and reaching this significant milestone. The game saw Arsenal dominate their opponents, with more goals to follow.

This goal signifies Saka’s 50th senior goal for Arsenal, achieved at the age of 22 in 209 appearances. At 22 years and 159 days, he becomes the youngest player to achieve this feat for Arsenal since Frank Stapleton did so 46 years ago in 1978. It’s evident that Saka is poised to set more records in an Arsenal jersey.

In the second half against West Ham, Saka added another goal to his tally, bringing his total to 51 for Arsenal. Known for his trademark style of cutting inside onto his left foot, he found the back of the net once again.

Beyond his goal-scoring prowess, Saka has also proven himself as a prolific creator, boasting 49 assists for Arsenal.

Saka’s significance to Arteta’s team cannot be overstated. Despite facing challenges this season, particularly with increased attention from opposition defenders, he continues to be a pivotal figure at the Emirates Stadium, serving as a talismanic presence for Arsenal.

It is crucial now that the £195,000-a-week star maintains his fitness and top form for the remainder of the season. Arsenal’s chances of contending for the title greatly rely on Saka performing at his best.

There’s an argument that Arsenal rely heavily on Saka. With him playing numerous matches and lacking a natural backup who can replicate his tactical role as a left-footed right-winger, it’s a concern that Arteta may need to address in the upcoming summer transfer window.

In the meantime, Saka will continue to carry the hopes and expectations of many Arsenal fans, a responsibility he has proven capable of handling thus far.
