‘It’s not even funny!’ – Man United fans make Mason Greenwood claim as Arsenal star compared – Football.London

Bukayo Saka has established himself as one of the strongest young players in European football during his time at Arsenal.

The 19-year-old, who turns 20 next month, is one of the Gunners‘ most dangerous attackers and has been for some time now.

Saka is one of many English talents that occupy a similar position, with this evident in his country’s Euro 2020 campaign. The likes of Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Jadon Sancho, Raheem Sterling and Mason Greenwood all play in a similar position to the Arsenal star – to name just a few.

The latter of the aforementioned five, Greenwood, is often compared to Saka by Arsenal and Manchester United supporters.

Now, with Greenwood performing really well for United in their clash with Leeds United at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, some fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the two.

Greenwood, who is also 19, but just under a month younger than Saka, was very impressive for Man United in the first-half and could have had an assist to his name.

The England international played Paul Pogba clean through on goal, but the Frenchman could not find the target.

Pogba somewhat repaid the favour in the second-half, though, and found Greenwood with an inch perfect pass and the United star found the bottom right corner with his left foot.

Saka made a return to action on Friday evening, coming on in the second-half of Arsenal’s disappointing 2-0 defeat to Brentford, to which he received a standing ovation from the supporters inside the stadium.

The Gunners ace was the subject of racist abuse after missing the decisive penalty in England’s Euro 2020 final defeat to Italy last month, but home and away fans issued their support on Friday.

That followed on from Tottenham fans applauding Saka onto the pitch at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last weekend.
