ARSENAL star Bukayo Saka has become the second youngest player to ever score 20 Premier League goals for the club.
Saka scored against Liverpool in the Emirates on Sunday when he scored twice and reached that important milestone at the age of 21 years and 34 days.
The winger delivered a man of the match performance to guide the Gunners to a 3-2 win over the Reds.
Only a player has been able to score that many times for the north Londoners at a younger age, they say Opta.
And this is Nicolas Anelka, who scored 20 Premier League goals at the age of 20 years and 41 days.
Anelka joined Arsenal from Paris Saint-Germain in 1997 and has recorded 28 goals and 12 assists in 87 games.
The legendary striker was so impressive at Highbury that he was signed by Real Madrid in 1999.
The former France international only spent a year at Real and then moved to a number of different clubs including Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool, where he played on loan.
Saka appeared under former manager Unai Emery at Arsenal in 2018 and has since established himself as one of the club’s biggest stars.
The England international played a key role in the Gunners’ flying season, which saw them rise to the top of the table with eight wins and just one loss in their first nine games.
