Man Utd's Antony 'has posters of Arsenal star Bukayo Saka in his bedroom', jokes Premier League legend

Man Utd's Antony 'has posters of Arsenal star Bukayo Saka in his bedroom', jokes Premier League legend

This is brutal.

Former Blackburn, Norwich and Chelsea striker Chris Sutton has taken aim at Manchester United winger Antony in order to heap praise on Bukayo Saka.

England made it two wins from two in their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign with a 2-0 victory over Ukraine on Sunday.

Saka produced a glowing performance at Wembley, setting up Harry Kane to open the scoring before finding the top corner with a stunning effort from the edge of the area.

He has been in blistering form for Arsenal this season, helping them to an eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Meanwhile Antony came on for Brazil in the second half of their match against Morocco on Saturday, and was guilty of losing possession in the build-up to Morocco's second goal, which saw them snatch a historic 2-1 victory.

The 23-year-old has sparked debate ever since his £86 million move from Ajax in the summer, having struggled to deliver what many expected from him.

Ex Premier League winner Sutton has not held back in his analysis of the winger, suggesting he "probably has Saka posters hanging on his bedroom wall".

Sutton: Saka is winning the battle

Sutton reckons Saka is the best right-sided player in the Premier League, surpassing the likes of Mohamed Salah and Riyad Mahrez. Whilst the pundit took a brutal swipe at Antony to help emphasise his point.

“Saka is winning the battle on the right," Sutton told Mail Plus.

"Salah has not been the same footballing force for Liverpool this season. Mahrez is incredibly talented for Man City but I would rank Saka ahead of him.

"And I won’t be taking any suggestions of Antony seriously — the United man probably has Saka posters hanging on his bedroom wall!”

"There is no limit to his potential and it is little wonder Arsenal fans were begging for him to be substituted after his goal and assist in yesterday’s win over Ukraine. They can’t imagine the title race without him,” added Sutton.
