Bukayo Saka caught laughing in disbelief after Arsenal Man of the Match decision

Arsenal star Bukayo Saka was seen laughing in disbelief after he was given the Man of the Match award in the Gunners' 1-0 win over Brighton.

The winger had already been substituted when it was announced that he had been named Man of the Match and when the cameras cut to Saka he had a look of disbelief on his face.

The 19-year-old put in an impressive performance and assisted Alexandre Lacazette's winning goal in a much-needed win for Arsenal.

The result saw them secure back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time since September.

Speaking after the game, Lacazette was full of praise for Saka, who has been one of few Arsenal players to impress on a regular basis this season.

He told Amazon Prime: "Bukayo gave me a good pass, as I like it and it was good for me. He was really good, every game he improves and shows his quality. Even if he’s young he’s still working hard for the team, everyone is happy with him."

Lacazette also spoke about the importance of back-to-back wins, adding: "Yeah, of course, we want to come back in the table and we know we have to win games in a row.

"The win over Chelsea gave us a lot of confidence. We just want to win every game and come back to the top.

His comments were echoed by manager Mikel Arteta, who said: "Yes, we know that we’ve been struggling with results recently. The fact that we won against Chelsea was a big boost because I think it was more related to results than performances.

"To come here again three days later and get another win is massively important. As well I think we did it in a convincing way.

"In the second half we played much better and in the Premier League you have to hang on for a few minutes. But proud for the boys and happy with the result."

Arsenal's next league game sees them face West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.
