Emile Smith-Rowe and Bukayo Saka are the best Arsenal duo since the era of Cesc Fabregas and Robin Van Persie in the early 2000s. This is according to the opinion of journalist EnisKoylu who writes for Eurosport. The media personnel believes that Arsenal have two hot world class players on their hands with Emile Smith-Rowe and Bukayo Saka. They have been likened to Robin Van Persie and Cesc Fabregas.
Saka and Smith-Rowe have been the catalyst for the Gunners who were having a poor season until the Chelsea game last month. Bukayo Saka scored one goal and also provided an assist as Arsenal beat the Blues 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium to end a run of seven league outings without victory. Emile Smith-Rowe provided the assist for the goal scored by Bukayo Saka. That Chelsea game started the current league run of five wins and one draw from the last six games. The 3-1 away win over Southampton on Tuesday night is the fifth win in six games and Bukayo Saka repeated his Chelsea feat during the game with one goal and one assist. Nigerian-born England international Bukayo Saka has now scored five goals in the league, which is more than the other teenagers. The 19-year-old is proving to be a menace for Arsenal this season alongside his partner in crime Emile Smith-Rowe.
