Man Utd vs Arsenal: Rooney singles out three Gunners players for praise
Manchester United legend, Wayne Rooney has hailed three Arsenal players ahead of the Red Devils’ Premier League tie with the Gunners on Sunday evening.
Man United will hope to continue from their recent impressive form when they host Mikel Arteta’s side at Old Trafford.
Writing in his column for The Times, Rooney lauded Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli for their contributions to Arsenal’s recent success.
The DC United manager said, “It looks like last season was a great learning experience for the likes of Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli, who have moved up a gear. When Arsenal attack, they have runs coming from different angles.”
He added: “Saka and Martinelli come from the sides and Odegaard from deep. They rotate well in their forward positions, and (Gabriel) Jesus sometimes drifts out of the No. 9 spot to end up wide or deeper, and then you have Saka or Martinelli or another player coming into the spaces he leaves.”
