Bukayo Saka has been a shining light for Arsenal in a difficult season up until this point and he has received high praise from ex-Premier League midfielder Owen Hargreaves. According to the former Manchester United and Bayern Munich player, Bukayo Saka is far from other recipients like Willian and Nicholas Pepe on the right side of the Arsenal attack. Owen Hargreaves lauded the quality of Bukayo Saka while he was on Premier League TV as he compared him with Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford. Both Bukayo Saka and Marcus Rashford are always unfazed in the face of adversary on the pitch according to Owen Hargreaves.

Owen Hargreaves is certain that the more experienced duo of Nicholas Pepe and Willian are not even close to Bukayo Saka quality-wise on the right side of the Arsenal attack despite the money spent on the two players. The Gunners signed Willian on a free transfer last summer when his Chelsea contract expired and the Brazilian player was offered a lucrative three-year deal before he penned it afterwards.On his part,Nicholas Pepe has not showed top form consistently since his club-record transfer to Arsenal in 2019. The Gunners paid £72m to sign him from French club Lille.

Young Arsenal attacker Saka has played in a number of positions since he broke into the first team some seasons back and his versatility was also praised by Owen Hargreaves. Bukayo Saka was amongst the goals once again at the weekend as his team ran riot against West Brom.

Arsenal thumped the Baggies 4-0 away from home with Saka getting one of the goals. He added a second goal for Arsenal in the first half after the opening goal from Scottish left-back Kieran Tierney. Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette added two goals after the halftime interval. Owen Hargreaves talked about Saka in glowing terms shortly after the West Brom match.
