James Maddison’s cheeky response to Bukayo Saka using darts celebration vs Spurs

James Maddison joked that Bukayo Saka was still celebrating after he “turned him for the first goal” during Sunday’s 2-2 draw between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

The England midfielder was on fire once again, providing both assists for Son Heung-min’s brace.

It was Arsenal that took the lead and after Saka’s shot deflected in off Cristian Romero, the winger celebrated by throwing an imaginary dart – something that Maddison also does after scoring goals.

Asked about the celebration after the match, Maddison admitted the pair share a bit of banter about it on England duty and took a cheeky dig at Saka.

“He must have still been doing it when I turned him for the first goal, so I’ll have a word with him,” he said, speaking to Talk Tottenham.

James Maddison has jokingly responded to Bukayo Saka after the Arsenal forward copied the Tottenham midfielder’s darts celebration in Sunday’s north London derby.

Saka mimicked Maddison’s arrows celebration after taking the shot which deflected off Cristian Romero for Arsenal’s 26th-minute opener in the 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium.

But 16 minutes later Maddison cleverly beat Saka on the left to set up Heung-Min Son for Tottenham’s equaliser.

Asked about his England team-mate copying his celebration, Maddison told SPURSPLAY: “Me and Bukayo had a bit of banter and a bit of trash talking on international duty.

“And I got told he did the darts celebration – he must have still been doing it when I turned him for the first goal I think, so I’ll have a little word with him in there!”

The 26-year-old also had the last laugh on the pitch as he helped to cancel out Saka’s second-half penalty which had put Arsenal 2-1 up in the 56th minute.

But just 90 seconds later, Maddison nicked the ball off Jorginho to then slip in Son for his second of the game and ensure Tottenham remain unbeaten in the Premier League under new boss Ange Postecoglou.
