Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka, despite celebrating a crucial 3-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the North London Derby, expressed his frustration with the team’s performance in the final 20 minutes of the match. While acknowledging the significance of the win, Saka emphasized the need for improvement and a more composed approach in closing out games.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, Saka candidly shared his feelings: “That last 20 minutes wasn’t nice, but it was worth it! Obviously, we know it’s a big derby, they don’t want to just lose 3-0 at home, so once they got one, the crowd was up, they were up, and the momentum shifted their way, but all the boys, we fought until the end.”

Saka’s words reflect a sense of disappointment with Arsenal’s inability to maintain their dominant first-half performance, which saw them race to a 3-0 lead. Tottenham’s late surge, resulting in two goals, exposed vulnerabilities in Arsenal’s game management and defensive organization.

While the victory solidifies Arsenal’s position at the top of the Premier League table, Saka’s comments highlight the team’s awareness of areas for improvement. As the title race intensifies, maintaining focus and composure throughout the entire 90 minutes will be crucial for the Gunners.

Saka’s honesty and self-critical approach are indicative of the winning mentality that Mikel Arteta has instilled within the squad. The young winger’s comments serve as a reminder that despite their current success, Arsenal remains a work in progress, constantly striving for improvement and excellence.
