Arsenal: Fans praise youth player and want him to start this season

Arsenal fans have been sending Bukayo Saka praise and want him to start more games this season.

The reaction comes after a fan gave his thoughts on the 18-year-old, saying his potential appearances in the Europa League could see Unai Emery give him more chances moving forward.

Saka enjoyed a standout campaign across various age groups for the north London giants last season, scoring 14 goals and assisting a further 12 in all competitions (via Transfermarkt).

He primarily featured for the under-18 and under-23 sides, however, also made his first-team debut for the Gunners in the Europa League.

Arsenal have given youth more of a chance this season, with Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock each making two or more starts in the Premier League (via WhoScored).

Fans praised Saka and his ability ahead of a crucial season at the Emirates Stadium, with one fan even comparing him to Nicolas Pepe, as they took to Twitter to react.

Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
