Arsenal star Bukayo Saka second-youngest to reach 20 Premier League goals after Liverpool double with forgotten man No1 | The Sun

ARSENAL star Bukayo Saka has become the second youngest player to ever score 20 Premier League goals for the club.

Saka was on target on Sunday against Liverpool at the Emirates as he scored a brace and reached that major milestone at the age of 21 years and 34 days.

The winger put together a man-of-the-match performance to lead the Gunners to a 3-2 victory over the Reds.

Only one player has ever been able to net as many times at a younger age for the North Londoners, according to Opta.

And that is Nicolas Anelka who registered 20 Premier League goals by the time he was 20 years and 41 days old.

Anelka joined Arsenal from Paris Saint-Germain in 1997 and registered a total of 28 goals and 12 assists in 87 appearances.

The legendary striker was so impressive at Highbury that he was signed by Real Madrid in 1999.

The former France international only spent one year at Real and went on to join a raft of different clubs, including Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool where he played on loan.

Saka burst onto the scene at Arsenal in 2018 while under former manager Unai Emery and has since been established as one of the club's biggest stars.

The England international has been playing a major role in the Gunners' flying season that has seen them climbing to the top of the table with eight wins and only one loss in their first nine matches.
