Declan Rice reacts to Bukayo Saka’s Instagram post after north London derby win

Arsenal midfielder Declan Rice reacted to Bukayo Saka’s Instagram post following the 3-2 Premier League win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners faced a tricky challenge against their London counterparts on the road, but they managed to come out with flying colours with another three points.

Saka was impressive with a goal and an assist. Following the win, he celebrated the victory on Instagram with the caption: “North London, you’re OURS! Always & Forever. THE Arsenal.”

A number of his teammates responded to the post including Rice who wrote: “Let them keep talking.”

Arsenal had to beat Spurs to stay alive in the title race. They were cruising to a comfortable 3-0 win at one stage before a huge goalkeeping blunder from David Raya.

Cristian Romero was gifted with a goal for Spurs. The Gunners had a nervous finish after Rice conceded a needless penalty which was converted by Son Heung-min.

The players held on for a 3-2 victory in the end. Saka was one of the top performers.

Aside from his goal and assist, the Gunners graduate won 12 ground and aerial duels. He also made five tackles, completing 88 per cent of his passes in the derby.

The 22-year-old looked back at his best against Spurs. The onus is now on replicating the performance during the final three games of the top-flight campaign.

Arsenal are currently top of the league with 80 points, but holders Manchester City still have a huge advantage. They are one point behind with a game in hand.

The Gunners can’t control their destiny, but need to ensure that they win their remaining matches to sustain the pressure on Pep Guardiola’s side in the coming weeks.
