Bukayo Saka is set for another Premier League start tonight as Arsenal prepare to face Sheffield United.
Although Alex Lacazette is back in the squad, it remains to be seen if he’s considered fit enough to start, and if not chances are the exciting 18 year old will be play from the left hand side again.
The Academy graduate has taken a big step forward this season after impressing during pre-season, and he says he’s feeling confident by the way he’s been used and how the other players have helped him.
“The players give me a lot of confidence,” he told the Evening Standard.
“The boss gives me a lot of confidence. When the boss is going to start you at Old Trafford it’s going to give you a lot of confidence.
“I just try to go out there, do my best, play without fear and doubt. If the boss trusts me to do it I can do it.
“I don’t feel the pressure. I try to go out there and not think about the outcome, just focus on the things I can control.
“Even if things aren’t going well I just work hard and the game will take care of itself.”
And while Lacazette’s return might see his chances of playing diminished, he’s backing himself to challenge anyone for a place in the team.
“Do I feel ready to challenge him? Yeah!,” he said.
“It’s always good to have all our best players available, all of us competing makes us push to play better and better.
“If one player is injured then others get an opportunity but I want everyone to come back and do the best for Arsenal.”
