Alan Shearer blown away by two Arsenal stars in 3-2 win over Spurs

Arsenal retained their position at the top of the Premier League table with a 3-2 victory at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

They are now aiming to win their remaining three games and pray Manchester City drops points so they can win the title.

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer was impressed with Kai Havertz and Bukayo Saka against Spurs, showering praise on them in his Team of the Week column.

“Unplayable at times,” the former striker wrote concerning the England international.

“Assisted the first goal and did very well to score the Gunners’ second, taking on Ben Davies before calmly slotting the ball past Guglielmo Vicario.

Havertz has been in fine form in recent months following a tough start to his Arsenal career following his arrival from Chelsea last summer, and he has proven his detractors wrong.

“Another wonderful performance,” Shearer continued. “Often dropping deep to link play and bringing his wingers into action as he assisted Saka.

“He also scored the third goal which ultimately ended up being the winner.”


Saka has bagged 15 goals and nine assists in 33 Premier League games, while Havertz has tallied 12 goals and six assists in 34 league appearances.

They have been involved in more league goals individually than their teammates, which is not surprising given the quality they bring to the table.

Havertz has had to work hard to prove his quality, and he has now notched his most league goals and assists in a season since moving to the Premier League in the summer of 2020.

He will be desperate to win his first-ever league title as a professional footballer this term.

Arsenal must pick up all available points when they take on Bournemouth, Manchester United and Everton to have a chance.
