Tierney and Saka won several plaudits for their form at Arsenal last season in what was a frustrating season for the Emirates side. But Saka was able to see how much Scotland means to his London teammate, the winger providing a 27-word assessment on the Scotland left-back.

The Arsenal winger said:  “He’s been alright. He’s quite humble, but I know I can tell how much the game means to him and how much it means to his country.”
