Arsenal forward, Bukayo Saka, has called on Premier League referees to offer him more protection, following their 1-0 win at Aston Villa on Saturday.
Saka netted the only goal of the game in the 30th minute.
However, the 20-year-old was clearly limping as he was replaced with 20 minutes left.
He has now revealed his conversation with referee Andrew Madley from the match.
“I wasn’t complaining but I wanted to let him know that is my game. I’m going to run at players, sometimes I need a bit more protection when the opposition is trying to kick me.
“My ankle is a bit bloody but I’ll be going into the next game doing the same things,” Saka said.
