Arsenal legend Michael Thomas believes that Bukayo Saka is currently playing in his best position for the club after an excellent run of form.
The talented 19-year-old has two goals and one assist in his last three games with the Gunners, in which they have finally hit a hot streak, taking nine points out of nine available.
This has been a welcome change for manager Mikel Arteta, who will have been feeling the pressure at Emirates Stadium after a terrible start to the season.
Arsenal are now looking back at their best, and Saka has been a key part of that, with Thomas praising him in his new attacking role on the right side.

“He can create and has a great eye for goal.
“For me, he never plays below a 7/10 and he gives everything regardless of the team’s performance.

Thomas, who won the title with Arsenal in 1989, also spoke about the continued absence of Thomas Partey, suggesting that the club perhaps shouldn’t set too high expectations on a player who has barely appeared since joining due to so many playing problems. injuries.
Thomas insisted that it is not good to depend too much on one player, and said Caught offside: “Thomas Partey will be a great boost for everyone. Its quality is undeniable, it is a pity that it had these drawbacks and could not get started.
“We have to remember that football is a team game and depending too much on one player is dangerous.”
