Arsenal welcome City to The Emirates knowing a defeat will see them surrender top spot.

But Henry expects Saka to be the difference and has been impressed with the youngster since his heartbreak of missing a penalty in the Euro 2020 final shoot-out.

Speaking to Amazon Prime Video, the Frenchman said: “A player for me that… there are so many players I’m looking forward to seeing in the game.

“But I’m going to have to mention Bukayo Saka.

“Why? Because the way he came back from the Euros, missing that penalty, he’s never looked back since.

“And I just think that I want the team to win and all of that, but I want him to play well in that game [against Man City], play well until the end of the season and to be the player that can decide games.”

Saka, 21, has been in fine form this season and has seven goals and eight assists in the Prem.

He has helped transform Mikel Arteta’s side into title contenders and has caught City’s eye in the process.


The Citizens are claimed to be monitoring his development, which has seen him go from strength to strength in recent months.

Saka has also been linked with a move to Liverpool in the past.
