Saka Assists in Arsenal's Theatre of Dreams Draw

Teenage Nigerian, Bukayo Saka was influential in Arsenal's valuable draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford in Premier League week seven last fixture on Monday night.
The youngster set-up the controversial equalizer for red-hot striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the second half to steal a point for the visitors.

Scott McTominay had earlier put Manchester United in the lead with a beautiful late first half strike for under-pressure Ole Gunnar Solskjær to cheer but there was lots of drama and incident at either end, not least the equalising goal when Aubameyang was initially judged to be offside in the moments before he flicked the ball over David de Gea.

It turned out to be a particularly poor judgment from a trigger-happy linesman and possibly the easiest VAR decision yet. Harry Maguire had been playing Aubameyang onside by some distance courtesy of the pass from Bukayo Saka. United did have a reasonable argument De Gea would have made more of an effort to block the shot had he not seen the raised flag.
The result move Arsenal to fourth position with 14 points in seven while United are mid-table at exactly 10th spot with 9 points and it is the first time since the 1989-90 season that the Red Devils have not reached double figures from their first seven games.
