Saka: A draw is not the worst result

by Koolkola

Bukayo Saka got the leveller in our  1-1 draw with Benfica in Rome.

After going behind to Pizzi’s penalty on the 55th minute, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missing clear chances for the team.

Saka faced the media after the game and had this to say…

On whether Arsenal should have won…

Yeah, definitely. We had a lot of chances, it’s frustrating. We feel like we dominated the whole game and they got a lucky penalty which I don’t think was a penalty. We’ve had to react to it, we’ve dealt with it well. We’ve got a goal back and we could have gone on to win it. It’s not the worst result, we got an away goal.

On nice build-up for his goal…

It was good interplay. We managed to switch the ball to Cedric and we all timed our runs, we were all onside and it was a good finish by myself. I’m happy for that goal.

On how he feels he’s progressing…

I feel like I’m improving every game. I’m trying to progress, trying to learn, listening to the coach because he gives a lot of good advice. I have experienced players around me who are helping a lot. I’m grateful to have a good team around me, a good family around me and I want to keep progressing.

On what Arsenal will learn from last year’s exit…

Managing the game. Last year against Olympiacos we conceded a goal that was quite sloppy, giving away a silly corner and then them scoring from the corner. Managing the game and knowing we can’t put a foot wrong. If we do and they get an away goal it’s going to make it very difficult for us.
