Bukayo Saka reveals what he told Smith Rowe that made the NLD “very special”


 Bukayo Saka reveals what he told Smith Rowe that made the NLD “very special.”

According to the Evening Standard, Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe discussed how special it would be to score in a north London derby before Arsenal’s win over Tottenham on Sunday.

The Gunners annihilated their opponents at home, with Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Saka all scoring. Smith Rowe broke the tie after only 12 minutes, sneaking into the box unnoticed to meet Saka’s delivery.

Smith Rowe then found Aubameyang to double their lead before Saka scored.

 Keeping calm and composed to nick the ball away from Harry Kane as the Tottenham Hotspur striker attempted to make amends for losing possession and drilling into the far corner of Hugo Lloris’ net.

Saka’s appearance in the north London derby on Sunday was his first in front of Arsenal fans, as his three previous appearances had all been behind mostly closed doors. 

Smith Rowe had also never faced Tottenham with Gunners fans in attendance, as fans were barred from his previous match.

On Sunday, Saka and Smith Rowe assisted Arsenal in running the show against Tottenham. As Mikel Arteta’s side took control in the first half, the pair frequently split the visitor’s defense. Their delight grew as both got on the scoresheet to help settle the outcome.

Smith Rowe described scoring in the north London derby as the “best day of my life” on Twitter. Saka would agree with the sentiment after also finding the back of the net, something the winger says they discussed prior to the game.

“I’d say it’s the same for me,” Saka said. “We spoke about this; about how massive it would feel to score in a north London derby. When Emile scored the first goal, I looked him at him and we remembered the conversation. When I scored, he looked at me again, so it’s a very, very special feeling for both of us. I’m so happy we could do it together.

Saka added: “It was a goal made in Hale End. We both grew up supporting Arsenal, we both grew up watching these games and wanting to be involved in them. Now, to be involved and score, it’s a special feeling.”
