Arsenal of England youngster, Bukayo Saka is still relishing his side’s victory over Tottenham Hotspur in last weekend’s London derby, as he believes The Gunners showed enough quality that can see them win silverware this season, megasportsarena.com reports.
Although many of the club’s fans are critical of their shaky start to the season and were already calling for the coach, Mikel Arteta’s head after just two matches in the English Premier League, Saka insists they have what it takes to win trophies.
The left-footed dark-skinned Nigerian-born lad added that age is not a factor to decide whether The Gunners can go all the way to glory this season, as he opined that they have enough experience from extensive exposure to top grade matches over the past months.
With that in mind, Saka is enthusiastic that The Gunners have taken a turn for the better and believes their North London derby victory over Tottenham proves they can gun for glory this season.
In Saka and Emile Smith Rowe, the Gunners had two academy graduates who both scored and assisted in the 3-1 win – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also on target before Son Heung-min struck a consolation for the visitors.
Arsenal had been bottom of the table ahead of September’s international break, while Spurs were sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League.
Sunday’s win, however, highlighted the change in fortune for the near-neighbours as Arsenal moved above their rivals, despite lining out a starting line-up with an average age of just over 24.
While Arteta has faced criticism following three defeats at the start of the campaign, Saka feels their performance against Spurs shows that Arsenal can have a successful season.
Saka submitted: “We can achieve anything, no matter what age. With age comes experience but we have a lot of experience in this squad anyway which helps us every day and teaches us.
“I believe we have a lot of quality and enough experience to achieve a lot. We’re going to take it game by game but if we play like this we have enough quality to win trophies.”
