Gary Neville flays Arsenal over Saka’s goal against Tottenham

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has hit out at Arsenal for over-celebrating Bukayo Saka’s penalty against Tottenham Hotspur after they conceded an immediate equaliser.

Saka scored a penalty in the second half against Tottenham, choosing to slot the ball down the middle of the goal beyond the diving Guglielmo Vicario.

The 22-year-old and his teammates celebrated wildly at Emirates.

Their joy, however, was short-lived after Tottenham produced an immediate response after James Maddison set up Son Heung-min for his second goal of the contest, as the match eventually ended in a 2-2 draw.

Neville believes Arsenal conceived a second goal because they lost focus celebrating Saka’s goal.

“I don’t want to get caught up in an Arsenal over-celebrating thing and argument here, but when that goal went in from Saka, they all went to that corner,” Neville told Sky Sports. Net 

“There’s a job to do; they had to concentrate, switch on, and focus. They got caught straight away from kick-off. I don’t think it was the time to overcelebrate in that corner; it was the time to get back to the halfway line and recognise that this game was far from finished. It’s a sweet finish from Son,” he added.
