“Yeah, 100 per cent,” Saka told the club website. “I feel like we’re in a much better place physically and mentally from last season.

“We’ve learned big lessons from last year, so we know what we need to do in these games. In these type of games, we need to score early, keep a clean sheet, work hard, and not give away any cheap goals.

“I feel like recently in 2024, we’ve been so solid, and we’ve been really impressive, so we’re happy with that.”

Saka’s goal took him to 14 league goals this season, equalling his tally from the previous campaign. He has however done in fewever games this season (29 games) than last term (38 games).

Arsenal are level with Liverpool on 71 points but with a superior goal difference while Manchester City are one point behind in third.
