Mikel Arteta told how Gabriel Martinelli can solve Arsenal’s growing Bukayo Saka dilemma

Bukayo Saka has extended his Premier League goal drought to 19 games after another goalless display in Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moore.

The England international’s lack of guile in front of goal has incurred calls for the 20-year-old winger to be pulled from the limelight and reduced to a more rotational role alongside Nicolas Pepe on the right-wing.

However, despite Saka’s diminutive direct goal contributions of late, Arsenal’s number seven won the foul that saw Martin Odegaard delicately lift the ball beyond Nick Pope into the top corner.

But, for England, the Hale End graduate has been a potent threat and frequent feature among the goals for Gareth Southgate’s side raising questions as to whether who is to blame for Saka’s turbulent form.
