This is possibly his last season for us, will possibly force a transfer, has not been at his best and if that continues we will be selling at a low point.

Really struggled to beat his man today and ended up cutting in, this was even when he was 1 on 1.

He got through once but it was a bit of a lucky bungled effort.

I think his lack of reall trickery is hindering him, unless he gets a start on a defender he doesn’t seem able to beat them often.

It’s the whole predictability thing with him and the whole team of were honest. Desperately need to come up with some new ideas.

Last season him and Martinelli worked really well as we were able to lunacy fast counters and teams didn’t have enough defenders back, this gave our wingers an advantage, this season were so slow and laboured moving forward they actually have to beat defenders from a standing start and they really struggle.

Has he peaked already?

Another in the line of several overrated English players?

This.

Not even a comparison, Saka is great ball to feet but that's really all he has, tbf Martinelli is suffering from the same issue, won't release a final ball until its overplayed.

Really simple thing for management to demand, play it in quicker........

Until Saka can finish or play quality final balls there is nothing to discuss with comparing him to Salah, nothing.

No, he just hasn't had any competition for his place for about 3 years.

Turning into Rashford, probably because he hasn’t had a break in like 3 years. Literally the same story as MR.

With Saka he’s a very good player, do I think he’s one of the best players in the world or has the talent to be, no. Having said that he has the potential to be very very good, I just think he lacks a bit of flair to elevate him and we’re
Seeing that a bit with his struggles to beat players, Gomes had him in his pocket yesterday and there was no double teaming and Gomes is a 2nd/3rd choice left back for them.

Definitely does need to be given a break sometime, he’s one of those players that literally will play every game regardless of form and right now his form is poor.
