New Winger in town? Arsenal’s Saka
The teenager’s excellent cross for Eddie Nketiah saw him join the English top-flight’s hallowed ranks

Bukayo Saka became the second-youngest player to assist in consecutive Premier League appearances on Sunday.

The teenager was a 19th-minute replacement for injured Sead Kolasinac in Arsenal’s 3-2 comeback triumph over Everton at the Emirates.

Saka made his impact felt eight minutes later after teeing up Eddie Nketiah for the Gunners’ equaliser after the visitors’ shock first-minute lead.

In the process, he is behind Everton’s Francis Jeffers as the youngest player to assist in consecutive English outings.

18y 171d – Aged 18 years and 171 days, Bukayo Saka is the youngest player to assist in consecutive Premier League appearances since Francis Jeffers for Everton in April 1999 (18y 89d). Pinpoint.

Since his promotion to Arsenal’s senior squad, the Anglo-Nigerian has turned heads with his impressive showings that saw him bag 10 assists across all competitions this term.

It will be recalled that Saka became the player with most Europa League assists this season after aiding Alexandre Lacazette’s goal in the 1-0 win at Olympiakos on Thursday.
