Arsenal is probably back in form after getting two consecutive wins [against Chelsea 3-1 and Brighton 0-1] and a draw [against Southampton 1-1] in their last five Premier League matches.
Bukayo Saka’s recent form for the Gunners could be a bad thing for £72m club-record signing Nicolas Pepe.
Saka has been involved in Arsenal’s last two winnings with his goal against Chelsea and his assist against Brighton.
Pepe arrived at the Emirate last summer from French club Lille, but has failed to make a serious impression under immediate past manager Unai Emery and now Mikel Arteta.
The 19-year-old’s form since breaking into the first-team last season, and followed by his strong start to the current campaign, may not bode too well for the Ivory Coast winger.
Saka has been sensational for Arteta’s side so far this season, most recently providing the assist for Alexandre Lacazette’s goal against Brighton.
In the game before against Chelsea, the teenage prospect scored Arsenal’s third and final goal as they secured a much-needed 3-1 win.
