Former Arsenal player Kevin Campbell believes Bukayo Saka’s goal scoring struggles are primarily due to Ben White’s immobility.
Arsenal has won four consecutive league games and now leads the Premier League with 12 points. The Gunners have scored 11 goals while conceding only three in these four games.
Bukayo Saka was Arsenal’s top goal scorer last season, but the ‘star boy’ has failed to score in all four games this season. Some fans have blamed his poor start on fatigue, but Campbell claims otherwise.

He believes that Saka’s drought is caused by Ben White’s inability to overlap properly.
Speaking to Football Insider he said:
“I just think that things are happening on the left-hand side solely because of Granit Xhaka and Zinchenko. Sometimes one releases the other”.
“You don’t have that on the other side with the way that Martin Odegaard plays. We know what Saka can do but Ben White has been deputising as a full-back and has done a really good job but he’s not an offensive full-back, he’ll be one that sits there”.
