Arsenal’s rave of the moment, Bukayo Saka has warned Aston Villa’s talisman Jack Grealish to stop hating on him after the Aston Villa attacking midfielder decided to bring up Saka’s goal against Chelsea on Rob Holding’s live Instagram video.
On Saturday, December 26, Arsenal hosted Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners stunned their visitors 2-0 before the first half ended. During the second half, Bukayo Saka drove himself into the box-eighteen. Afterward, he chipped the ball over Chelsea’s goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and the ball ended in the net beautifully to make it three for Arsenal.
At the end of the match, Bukayo Saka took to his verified Twitter account to tweet about the goal. In his tweet, the 19-year-old English footballer wrote that he saw Chelsea’s goalkeeper off his line before he chipped in the ball.

The explanation Saka gave concerning the goal seemed to be a lie to some people who believed that the goal was an outcome of a mishit cross that Saka attempted. Jack Grealish is one of those people who don’t believe Saka’s explanation of the goal.
The 25-year-old Aston Villa captain who followed the live Instagram video of Rob Holding after Saka had inspired Arsenal to win 1-0 over Brighton on Tuesday, decided to use the show to call out Bukayo Saka. Grealish urged the Arsenal versatile football star to stop lying about how he scored his goal against Chelsea.
“Bukayo stops lying saying u meant to chip the keeper”, Jack Grealish wrote via the comment section of the live Instagram video.
Fortunately for those who were following the show, Bukayo Saka was available to give an immediate reaction to Grealish’s attempt to rubbish his brilliant goal. Hence, the youngster wrote: “Bro I saw him off his line. Stop hating”.
The two players got their call-up to the England national team in 2020. Though Jack Grealish got his call-up in September and Saka got his in October, Saka has already made 4 appearances for the Three Lions while Grealish has made three. Both of them are yet to score their international goals.
However, they are both very important players to their clubs. Grealish has been very consistent in helping Aston Villa to remain among the top five by scoring 5 goals and providing 8 assists in 14 league games.
On the other hand, the brilliance of Saka has been more obvious in Arsenal’s last two Premier League games. He effectively helped Arsenal to end their 7 winless run and helped them to record two successive wins which have taken the club from the 15th spot to the 13th spot on the league table.
