Player to watch – Bukayo Saka

Bukayo Saka top scores for Arsenal in the Premier League this season, as well as being the club's leading assist provider.

The England international has netted 13 times and provided eight assists for the Gunners this season, making him their key attacking player.

Arsenal's best attacking player this season

We're backing Saka to return with a bang this weekend at Brighton, putting in the kind of display that will help guide the Gunners to a big three points.
