Chris Sutton shared his verdict on Bukayo Saka.

The Gunners played some truly incredible football last term and they were a joy to watch most of the time.

However, this term, their attacking play has been much less fluid, and their star players haven’t been playing with as much confidence or freedom it feels.

Bukayo Saka, quite simply, hasn’t been as good as he was last season, and, if you’re one to buy into any of this, his xG numbers show that he is underperforming in terms of finishing.

Speaking on Fantasy 606, Chris Sutton has been analysing Saka’s numbers, and he says that the winger is going to improve in the second half of the season, claiming that he’s simply too good to continue underperforming.

“If you look at Saka’s numbers, he’s underperforming his numbers. If you take away his penalty goals, and you look at the goals minus the xG, he’s underperforming from open play,” The host said.

“So he is due in the second half of the season to improve that, he’s too good of a player, so you’re saying to stick with Saka?” Sutton said.
