Many Arsenal fans slammed the performance of Bukayo Saka in their 1-0 home loss to Everton in the Premier League on Friday night.
A comical own goal from Bernd Leno seriously dented Mikel Arteta’s hopes of qualifying for European competition through the league at the Emirates Stadium, as their forward line simply could not find a way to score against a stubborn Toffees defence, with Saka one of those guilty of lacking an end product.
Should Arsenal drop Saka?
The England international squandered a good chance in the first half and was particularly poor with his delivery from crosses, especially from corners, as he only managed one accurate cross out of seven in the entire game (Sofascore).
Saka also lost possession of the ball on 23 separate occasions, the most of any player to have set foot on the pitch, as he recorded a below-par 6.3 rating on Sofascore, the second lowest of any outfield player on the night.

These Arsenal supporters slammed his performance on Twitter, with one Gooner even going as far as to claim that the 19-year-old was ‘woeful’:
“Saka is so overrated! He’s a LWB at best. Arteta is a fraud. Know this and know peace! His substitutions are horrible! #ARSEVE”
“Partey, Smith Rowe and Saka have been woeful. Leno has cost us for like the 4th time this season. He needs to be dropped for the rest of the season including the Europa League. #ARSEVE”
“The protection these English players get! What have ESR, Saka, Chambers done today? Ceb has been the best, Partey the worst #ARSEVE”
“#Saka is not really working. #ARSEVE”
“Partey, Leno, Auba, Saka and our entire defence have been disgustingly poor since Christmas #ARSEVE”
“Saka really having a bad game. Damn. #ArsEve #KroenkeOut”
