Arsenal have been struggling to score goals of late.
The Gunners have made big improvements at the back, with new signing Gabriel Magalhaes making a fantastic impact.
But Mikel Arteta’s side have been having difficulty putting the ball in the back of the net, which has never really been an issue for Arsenal as a club.
Currently, only five other teams have scored fewer goals in the division than the north Londoners, and fans have been worried about the recent lack of firepower.
Some have put it down to the actual creating of chances.
That could be part of the problem, but one man did give Arsenal fans reason to be optimistic last night that the goals will rain again.
Bukayo Saka was only brought on after 38 minutes to replace the injured Ben Chilwell, but wasted little time demonstrated his quality – creating three chances which was bettered by no other player according to Squawka.
BGA’s View – Saka the shining light
Arsenal may be struggling at the moment but Saka’s form should give every Gunners fan real hope.
It really was an impressive showing from him against the current number one ranked team in the world Belgium, and to create three chances in little over half a game just further emphasises his quality.
That’s now six chances created in his last two England appearances, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette especially will hope he can continue in this fashion.
