Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling posted a picture of himself and Arsenal star Bukayo Saka having a bit of fun in a training session with England.

The Three Lions play their final game of this international break against Poland at Warsaw tonight. Gareth Southgate’s men have picked up back-to-back 4-0 wins against Hungary and Andorra, with Saka starring in the most recent fixture.

The Arsenal youngster picked up a goal, an assist and the man of the match award against Andorra on Sunday. He will be looking to do the same tonight, as will Sterling, who hasn’t quite been at his absolute best lately.

A video of the same isn’t available at the moment, but if the picture Sterling has uploaded onto his Instagram Stories is to be believed, Saka wasn’t quick enough to catch his compatriot.

Sterling posted a five-word message saying: “Gotta be quicker than that”.

Saka’s speed will be important against Norwich

Arsenal host Norwich City this weekend as Mikel Arteta aims to turn things around in the Premier League. We’ve lost each of our first three games so far and things simply have to change at the Emirates on Saturday.

Norwich, under Daniel Farke, are a really exciting team to watch. They aren’t ever afraid to have a go at the big teams, which is really admirable, but that opens up space for their opponents to exploit.

Saka’s pace, movement and dribbling skills could make him our biggest threat this weekend. Hopefully, he can sort his feet out and help Arsenal and Arteta get out of the hole we are in at the moment.
