Saka makes four-word Arsenal title promise after Bournemouth victory


Bukayo Saka has insisted Arsenal will not stop fighting as their thrilling Premier League title race against Manchester City takes a fresh twist. The Gunners beat Bournemouth 3-0 to go four points clear at the top of the table, if only for a few hours, with the reigning champions aiming to close that gap back down to one with a victory at home to Wolves on Saturday evening.

After a tense first 40 minutes, Saka eventually gave Arsenal the lead from the penalty spot after a foul by Bournemouth goalkeeper Mark Travers on Kai Havertz. Leandro Trossard and Declan Rice were also on target later on in the game to cap off a superb afternoon for the Gunners.

Despite no goals arriving in the first half, there was a huge talking point involving Saka. The 22-year-old was on the receiving end of a challenge from Cherries player Lewis Cook just before the 15-minute mark. Ryan Christie then followed up with a high tackle which left Saka with a cut on his shin.

Ultimately, the decision did not impact the final score however Arteta was still asked for his verdict on a number of incidents including the one involving Saka. “The honest answer is I haven’t seen any of the incidents because I knew you were going to ask me. I did it on purpose,” he said.
