According to David Ornstein of The Athletic, Arsenal face a battle to keep hold of Bukayo Saka this summer.

The 18-year-old broke onto the scene practically immediately upon introduction to the first team. Deployed a few times in his preferred position on the left wing by Unai Emery, he was asked to do the best he can on the left defensive flank in the absence of both Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac.

Arsenal are set to resume the Premier League season when they take on Newcastle United at the Emirates on Sunday, following the winter break which reportedly did the team a lot of good.

Left-back Kieran Tierney, who hurt his shoulder by falling awkwardly in the West Ham clash back in December, has been ruled out and will likely need a few weeks more. It was confirmed that he was back in training in Dubai, but it was restricted to strictly non-contact work which obviously means his shoulder is still too sensitive for him to play.

Even the newly signed Cedric Soares came from Southampton injured. Forward Reiss Nelson has now joined them all in the treatment room.

The game ended in another draw, another lead nullified as Gabriel Martinelli’s first-half tap-in opener was cancelled late by John Fleck’s nicely taken volley. But let’s take a look at a few things that can be taken from this match, one by one.

Arsenal played their first game under the command of the newly appointed Mikel Arteta on Boxing Day, a 1-1 draw away to Bournemouth. The entire football public in England, let alone Arsenal supporters, were anxious to see if there would be any conclusions drawn from the former captain’s managerial debut. There were, but nothing remotely telling about the way things are going to unfold in the coming months.

Hyperboles are thrown around in the world of football these days, and it’s mainly all to do with getting carried away in the moment. A prime example of that would probably be when a youngster is on the rise in the game, and suddenly gets a surge of momentum courtesy of increased attention from the media. While it isn’t necessarily a guarantee that this’ll happen with everyone it’s certainly been a practice that has grown in popularity in recent times, and the media has a big role to play in that.
