'I think he's the best young player in the league' - Arsenal star hails Saka following recent performances

Arsenal teenager Bukayo Saka is enjoying a breakout season at the London club, exciting both fans and teammates alike. 

The youngster has registered 10 assists in all competitions this season, five among those coming in the Europa League

He was crucial in last week's 1-0 win over Olympiacos in the competition, assisting Alexandre Lacazette for the lone goal. 

Speaking ahead of the return leg on Thursday night, the Frenchman heaped praise on the English teenager, terming his the best in the league this season. 

"He's really good," the France international said during a pre-match conference on Wednesday evening. "I think he's maybe the best young player in the league.
 
"It's simple: [it's down to] his quality. He's got a good left foot. Because he is humble, it's easier for him to improve.
 
"He needs to improve in a few things but you can see the quality he has and he's humble. The best thing for him is to be involved. He wants to work, he accepts criticism because he wants to improve," he added. 

Saka looks set to start on Thursday night with Sead Kolasinac ruled out due to injury.
