Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen believes Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka could challenge Manchester City’s Erling Haaland for the Premier League Player of the Year award.
Both Saka and Haaland have been in prolific form, helping their respective clubs challenge for the league title this term.
Arsenal currently holds an eight-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table, having played one game more.
Speaking after Arsenal defeated Crystal Palace at the weekend, Owen was asked if Saka could win the Premier League Player of the Year award ahead of Haaland, and the former Real Madrid attacker told Premier League Productions: “He (Saka) would 100% be in the conversation. It looks like Haaland—that number nine you are talking about.
“He is going to break virtually every record that has ever been set in terms of goalscoring in the Premier League this season."
“But, when you are talking about having conversations about other players, then Saka definitely is right up there.”
