Arsenal drew motivation from Manchester City’s 1-1 draw against Everton before their game against Brighton on Saturday, according to Bukayo Saka.
Arsenal and England wonderkid Bukayo Saka said that Manchester City’s 1-1 draw against Everton earlier on Saturday gave them the needed motivation to go and beat Brighton. The Gunners came out 4-2 winners.
No club that’s been seven or more points clear at the top of the Premier League at New Year’s – where Arsenal currently stand – have gone on to lose the title.
“We just try and focus on ourselves but when we heard that result it gave us extra motivation to try and press on and get a result today,” said Saka to the BBC after the game.
The league leaders have a stern test against Newcastle on January 3.
