Rob Holding highlights lesser known Bukayo Saka quality ahead of Arsenal vs Leicester City

Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday in the hope of making it five wins in succession.

The Gunners are fourth in the Premier League going into the weekend fixtures and are currently in pole position to finish in one of those all-important Champions League places.

One player who has been simply outstanding this season and a revelation since breaking into the first team back in 2019 is Bukayo Saka.

At just 20 years of age, the Hale End product has delivered excellent performances at left wing-back, left-back, right wing-back, left central midfield, left-wing and as a creator in the whole during his time in an Arsenal shirt already.

But without a shadow of a doubt, Saka’s best position is on the right-hand side, operating as a touchline winger during the build-up phase before being given the license to drift inside.

Certainly, the youngster possesses a plethora of desirable attributes that are very well known, but the strength he holds in possession is an aspect within his game that goes unnoticed and Rob Holding highlighted this specific quality of his in a recent interview.

“It’s kind of how strong he is for a young boy,” Holding said about Saka on Sky Sports for their latest episode of FIFA vs Challenge.

“I can’t believe how strong he is, the way he rolls people. Bukayo just has the balance and does not really fall over or get off balance and just rolls it.

“I think it’s a talent, you just have that, you can’t teach that.”

Saka has already exceeded his most productive league campaign, with eight goals and five assists to his name this season already and he will be hoping to deliver a stellar impact against Leicester City.
