  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! SAKA BURIES A LOW STRIKE!!!!! 1-0 ARSENAL!!!!!! The Gunners take a deserved lead as Saka connects with a strike on the half-volley and beats Martinez. Saka starts the move with an offload to Cedric down the right flank. He angles a cross into the box that is deflected out to Saka on the edge. The winger connects first-time and his left-footed drive travels through a crowd of players and past Martinez.
