Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka has become a crucial role in the Gunners' plans, but he is keen to avoid any extra pressure.

Saka has told 

Standard Sport

 of his role with the Gunners:

"I don't feel pressure from external voices. I've always wanted to have the courage to play, to be the one that's visible when everyone's heads are down.

"I don't think that I'm the player that's carrying Arsenal. In football, it is 11 men. I don't think that I can do anything just by myself. It's a team sport."

Saka recently extended his contract with Arsenal until 2024; he added:

"For me, it was just to think about what was best for my career and I felt what was best for my career was to continue playing with Arsenal

."

Arsenal

will face

Villarreal

in the Europa League semi-finals, and it seems confidence is high in the Gunners camp.

The 19-year-old added: "

It would mean everything, to me, to the fans, to the club and of course it would mean a return back to the Champions League next season. It's every kid's dream to play in the Champions League and play in the biggest matches of your career

."
