Owen Hargreaves’ opinion on the two Arsenal players after the victory
Hargreaves, the former Man United player, enjoyed the latest match, claiming the two players are ‘diamonds‘.
“Both players, they go one v one, they can beat anyone in the world. United have wingers, who one v one, they aren’t at their best. They have to come inside. I do think that has an impact on how the team plays. I watch Martinelli and Saka. I think ‘wow, those guys are just absolute diamonds’.”, claimed Owen during an interview on September 4.
Indeed, the two players have made great strides in their career in the last two seasons, with a remarkable record of both goals and assists.
The duo also play in this season’s Champions League, allowing them to further boost their reputation and value.
