EPL: Arsenal not under severe pressure on league leadership, says Saka

Bukayo Saka has said Arsenal’s young players have no problem over the pressure of being Premer League leaders.

Saka and his pals are looking to extend their stay at the top-flight summit with a win over Leeds at Elland Road on Sunday. And the fact they are flying so high this season shows the difference a year can make. After nine games last season, they were 10th – although Saka insists the mindset is really no different.

He said: “There isn’t really a difference in mentality in being chased to chasing. Right now, I’m just focused on going into every game and trying to win it. It’s really early in the season to be thinking about staying stop or anyone chasing us.

“It’s just important to stay focused on the next game and, if we continue to win each game, we still stay at the top. So, we don’t need to overthink being chased and stuff like that.”

Saka also said: “Thursday (at Bodo/Glimt) was a classic example – we didn’t play our best and we are not so happy with our performance. But at the end of the day the day we left with the three points.

“That’s the most important thing and we can be happy with that. It’s a big learning curve, of course, but sometimes you’ve just got to do what it takes to win.”
