Premier League: Saka Shines As Arsenal Spank Everton

Bukayo Saka was impressive for Arsenal in the 4-0 win over Everton on Wednesday night.

He scored the opening goal with a thunderous finish from Zinchenko’s pass.

He provided the assist for Martinelli to score the second goal just before halftime.

Odegaard added the third goal from a Leandro Trossard’s cross in the 71st minute.

Martinelli put the icing other  cake finishing off Eddie Nketiah’s cross with 10 minutes to go.

Saka became the the sixth-youngest player in Premier League history, at 21, to reach 50 goals and assists.

Arteta was delighted with his team’s performance as they earned a third consecutive Premier League victory.

“I am delighted with the win and the way we played after the first 25 minutes. We had some difficulties at the start. They are difficult to play against.

“Once we scored the first goal, the game unlocked. We needed a magic moment and Bukayo produced that.

After that we grew and deserved to win the game.

“With the way they play, direct, second balls, a small lead isn’t enough.

“We played really well in the second half and could have scored more.

“I am delighted when I see the team play the way we want to.

“This league is a different story [no easy games]. We had big proof of that at Goodison. They made it difficult for Liverpool to.

Arsenal will return to Premier League action with a home clash with Bournemouth on Saturday, while Everton take on Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Sunday.
