English born left winger Bukayo Saka is delighted to have scored his first Premier League goal just days after he penned down a new long term contract at Arsenal.

Saka broke the deadlock in the 43rd minutes at the Molineux to give the visitor the lead ending into half time break.

The England U19 star Bukayo Saka said he has had a week he will remember.

“I have had a week I will remember my whole life” he told BBc sports

After he celebrated signing a new long-term contract the teenager struck his first Premier League goal with a sweet, left-foot volley to deliver a blow to the hosts’ hopes of Champions League football next season.

Arsenal made sure of a fourth successive victory when Alexandre Lacazette capped a fine team display by turning on fellow substitute Joe Willock’s pass and firing emphatically past Wolves keeper Rui Patricio with five minutes left.

“It has been such a great week, signing my contract and then getting my first Premier League goal,” England Under-19 international Saka told BBC Sport.
“And it wasn’t a bad goal either so I’m very happy.

“I have to stay humble and keep my feet on the ground to keep learning. It’s important for us to have experience and world-class players around to advise us. It was tough for us today but we gave our all and that is what got us over the line.”

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta described Saka as “talented and intelligent” after the player committed his future to the club on Wednesday, and was impressed once again at Molineux.

“The finish was really difficult,” Arteta told BBC Sport. “It was a turning point in the game.”.
