Bukayo Saka’s celebration after Arsenal goal vs Aston Villa explained

Bukayo Saka’s celebration after Arsenal goal vs Aston Villa explained

On Saturday afternoon, Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka scored an excellent goal in their 4-2 victory over Aston Villa, bringing his total number of goals to nine. Despite being held back twice by Aston Villa, Arsenal managed to secure a win by scoring two goals in extra time.

This season, Saka has been one of Arsenal top players, with 23 appearances resulting in nine goals and eight assists. When Saka fell to the ground clutching his ankle in discomfort during the game, Mikel Arteta was worried about the extent of the injury.

After the match, the Arsenal manager provided reassurance regarding any worries about a possible injury to Saka. The Spanish coach promptly gave an update on the player, which should be received as positive news.

“He’s fine, he got kicked quite a lot today again, nut he’s going to have to deal with that, not every week, but every three days and sometimes in training as well because it’s his game and teams are not stupid and they want to stop him,” said Arteta as he called for more protection for the 21-year-old.

Following Ollie Watkins’ early goal for the home team, Saka’s goal allowed Arsenal to draw level. With a powerful volley, the English player struck the ball into the net, beating former Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, who had an unfortunate game against his old team.

After helping Arsenal reclaim their position at the top of the Premier League, Saka explained that his celebration was a tribute to Arsenal icon Thierry Henry.

The young forward shared a photo of his celebration alongside another photo of Henry doing the same celebration for France, with the message: “Honouring the King crown emoji.”

Saka will undoubtedly be hoping to play a key role in leading Arsenal to their first Premier League title since 2004. During that season, Arsenal, led by manager Arsene Wenger and featuring Thierry Henry, famously remained unbeaten throughout the entire campaign, earning them the moniker of “The Invincibles”.
