Bukayo Saka is continuing his fine Premier League season as he hit another milestone for Arsenal in their 4-1 thrashing of Crystal Palace.
Saka got two goals and an assists as the victory put them eight points clear of Man City going into the international break.
Saka’s fine form at Arsenal is showing no signs of stopping
His assist for Martinelli’s goal has helped him reach an impressive landmark
His assist for Gabriel Martinelli’s goal, and Arsenal’s first against Crystal Palace, saq him hit double figures for goals and assists.
Saka is the first Premier League player to do so this season, with the 21-year-old shining for the Gunners.
He is certainly Arsenal’s next rising star, and his efforts in the current campaign have equalled a record last reached by Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean was the most recent player to score ten and assist ten in the league for Arsenal, doing so in the 2016/17 campaign.
Sanchez finished that season with 24 goals and 11 assists in the Premier League, a tally that Saka might not be able to reach.
However, he has once again proven to be crucial in their title efforts, with the winger finding the back of the Palace net himself just before half-time.
The goal was his 21st league contribution of the season, putting him third behind Erling Haaland on 33 and Harry Kane on 23.
Saka then got onto the scoresheet himself to make it 2-0 to Arsenal
Sanchez was the last Gunners star to achieve such a feat
Martin Odegaard is looking likely to be the next Arsenal player to also get double figures, with the Norwegian on ten goals and seven assists.
Should they continue such efforts until the end of the season, then the Gunners could be set to lift their first title since 2004.
Granit Xhaka scored his second goal in as many games to make it 3-0 to Arsenal, before Jeffrey Schlupp was able to get one back for Palace.
However, Saka found the back of the net for a second time to dismiss any fears of a late comeback from the visitors.
Although they have now played a game more than City, they can head into the break knowing they have a comfortable cushion in top spot.
