Arsenal legend, Ian Wright has suggested that manager Mikel Arteta should rest forward Bukayo Saka, who has been outstanding for the team so far this season in the coming weeks.
Saka has been central to Arsenal’s efforts in the Premier League title race this season, but because of his exceptional injury record, he is rarely been offered any respite.
The 21-year-old has featured 34 times for the Gunners this season, directly contributing towards 24 goals.
The England youngster has scored just one goal in his previous six appearances for Arteta’s side and he doesn’t look anywhere near as energetic as he once did earlier in the season.
Speaking on the Wrighty’s House Podcast, Wright admitted that he is worried for Saka if he continues to have more minutes.
“Maybe Saka should get a little bit of a rest.
“I think a little rest. Maybe my mouth is going too quickly for my brain, in this situation, we can’t afford to lose any more games, we need everybody out there, but I just worry, I worry for him,” Wright said.
