The young star has established another incredible record

Bukayo Saka has become the first Arsenal player in history to appear in each and every game of the Premier League in consecutive seasons as the 2022-23 term comes to an end.

Saka, a 21-year-old star for the Gunners, is the first Premier League player to achieve it this year. He is undoubtedly Arsenal’s upcoming star thanks to his achievements throughout the current season.

He has played in all 36 of the team’s Premier League games in 2022-2023, accruing 3,044 minutes of action while being started in 35 of those games and used as a replacement on one occasion.

Arsenal were expected to win the title this season, but the Gunners fell short when it counted and relinquished the trophy to Manchester City, who won it three times in a row.

Arsenal will however draw encouragement from this campaign because it marked their return to the Champions League following the 2016–17 campaign.

And despite an upsetting start to the season, the 21-year-old had a fantastic season. The international player for England has scored 13 goals and provided 11 assists so far this season.

The Gunners will compete in the Champions League the next season, and few players are anticipated to depart the team.

Mikel Arteta is aware of the areas in which they require steel support in order to contend with premier Champions League teams and win the Premier League championship the following year.

Declan Rice, 24, is still a top target for Arteta to sign because he believes he will balance out the defensive midfield.

Despite Manchester United winning the Carabao Cup and being in the FA Cup final, Arsenal are finishing the current season trophy-less and will be hoping to compete for all positions next season.
