Saka's dig at Marcus Rashford

At the same time, fans are sharply divided on the Bukayo Saka's choice of celebration after scoring a stunner against Man United, Sports Brief has reported.

He scored the second goal to give Arsenal the lead, after Eddie Nketiah had cancelled out Marcus Rashford's beautiful opener. The 21-year-old was allowed to weave his way to the edge of the penalty area, before unleashing a ferocious shot which flew past a scampering David de Gea.

After his ninth goal in nine straight games, Saka then dashed towards the corner flag pointing to his temple, as Rashford has done since the World Cup break.
