Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka took to Instagram to apologize to supporters after his crucial penalty miss against West Ham on Sunday. The England international player had the chance to hand Arsenal a 3-1 lead early in the second half of his side’s clash with West Ham at the London Stadium but completely fluffed his lines as he sent his penalty well wide of the post. West Ham went on to grab an equalizer, forcing the Gunners to settle for a point that gives title rivals Manchester City fresh impetus in the race for the trophy.

Following the match, Saka apologized to Arsenal fans via social media. “Regardless of the outcome, I’ll always accept my responsibility. Apologies Gunners, I’ll do everything I can to make it right,” he said on Instagram. Arsenal now leads Man City by just four points atop the Premier League, and Pep Guardiola’s side have a game in hand. The Gunners have let 2-0 leads slip in consecutive contests, having also been held by Liverpool in a thrilling game at Anfield last week.
