Saka Equals Henry’s Arsenal Record In 3-1 Win Vs West Ham
Bukayo Saka equaled Arsenal legend Thierry Henry’s record after the Gunners came from behind to beat West Ham 3-1 in their Boxing Day fixture.
Saka drew Arsenal level in the 53rd minute after intercepting a low shot from Martin Odegaard before slotting into the bottom corner.
The goal means Saka is the first Arsenal player to score in three successive Boxing Day matches (2020, 2021 and 2022) since Henry (2002, 2003 and 2004).
Arsenal resumed league action with the impressive win against the Hammers, which took their lead over second-place Newcastle to seven points.
West Ham took the lead through Said Benrahma from the penalty spot before second half goals from Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah sealed the win.
Up next for Arsenal is a tricky trip to Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday, 31st December.
