This was Saka’s first game back since being on duty at Euro 2020, which involved the Arsenal academy product being racially abused after the tournament after he missed the decisive penalty kick that helped Italy become champions.

It needs to be remembered there were no away fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as the home supporters provided Saka with a warm welcome as he came onto the pitch as a substitute.

This was Lineker’s reaction to the footage on Twitter, whilst Celtic keeper Joe Hart added the word ‘class’ when the same clip was relayed on Instagram.

At the end of the game, it was Spurs who walked away with the win in the pre-season friendly, albeit it was a friendly on paper only.

Whilst there has been a lot of talk about what’s going on at Tottenham off the field of play, Nuno Espirito Santo is having a strong start to the club on the pitch.

As for Mikel Arteta, these are worrying times for the Spanish coach, who might not be in a job if he starts off the Premier League campaign in a poor fashion.
