Saka: Arsenal will win trophies if we play like we did against Spurs

ukayo Saka says Arsenal’s young squad can “achieve anything” this season, as he targeted winning silverware following yesterday’s 3-1 demolition of Tottenham.

The Gunners made it three League wins on the bounce with one of the standout performances of Mikel Arteta’s tenure, as they punished lacklustre Spurs with three goals inside the opening 35 minutes.

Arsenal started with a youthful XI, including five summer signings, but Saka believes they have enough experience to win trophies this season.

“We can achieve anything, no matter what age. With age comes experience but we have a lot of experience in this squad anyway which helps us,” Saka said.

“We have a lot of quality and enough experience to achieve a lot. We’re going to take it game by game but if we play like this we have enough quality to win trophies.

“I can’t really describe how good it feels. Starting with the atmosphere in the stadium — it was crazy! The fans gave us so much energy and, for us to repay them and win like this at the stadium, it just means everything for us.

“It’s been almost two years since we played a north London derby with the fans. And you could tell it’s been nearly two years by the way they received us and cheered us. It was a special game.

“We all wanted it. We knew how much the game meant to the fans, we knew how much the game meant to us. And of course to build winning momentum — we’ve won three games in a row — is really good for us.
