Bukayo Saka has urged Arsenal to keep their cool in the race
for European qualification.

The 18-year-old scored his first Premier League goal in the
Gunners’ impressive 2-0 win at European rivals Wolves on Saturday.

It left them seventh, three points behind Nuno Espirito
Santo’s side, and six adrift fifth-placed Manchester United.

Manager Mikel Arteta admitted afterwards there was no room
for error and Saka, who penned a new long-term deal at the Emirates this month,
refused to get caught up in European talk.

“We’re just taking each game by each game because we
know how important every point is at this stage,” he told

“We’re trying to win every game we can, take each game
slowly and we’re just so happy to get the win because we know how much it means
in terms of the table and the position we finish.

“We play this competition so much. This competition is
probably the one that means the most to us right now so I’m just so happy to
get the goal and help my team get the win.”

Saka opened the scoring two minutes before the break when he
hooked in Kieran Tierney’s deflected cross.

Alexandre Lacazette made it 2-0 late on, firing in off the
post, as Wolves’ Champions League hopes suffered a blow.

Adama Traore missed their best chance when he chipped over
with just goalkeeper Emi Martinez to beat in the second half.

The winger conceded Arsenal’s ruthless streak at Molineux
was the difference.

“We fought until the end, we had a couple of chances,
they scored, and I think we missed a few things in the game,” he told the
club’s official site.

“We did have the chances and we didn’t score them, me
personally, but it is what it is. We have to keep working and we will keep
working so next time we can put them in.

“I think it was a close game, but the difference was
they scored, and we didn’t.

“I had a chance one-v-one with the keeper, and I didn’t
score. But, like I say, we will keep working, we will be more clinical, and
this is the difference between the best teams – they have one or two chances
and they score.”
