Chris Sutton has revealed he prefers Tottenham winger Dejan Kulusevski over Arsenal wide man Bukayo Saka.
Kulusevski joined Spurs during the January transfer window on loan from Juventus, with Antonio Conte’s side holding an option to make the move permanent for £25.7 million (The Guardian).
The 22-year-old has hit the ground running in England scoring three goals and setting up eight in just 15 Premier League games (Transfermarkt) while slotting in seamlessly alongside Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.
Tottenham will be hoping the trio are on song when they face Arsenal in what is a vital game for both sides’ hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.
Ahead of Thursday’s encounter, former Chelsea striker Sutton weighed in his thoughts on which north London team possesses the best attack.
While claiming Spurs’ forward line overpowers Arsenal’s, he also admitted he would rather have Kulusevski on the wing over England international Saka, to the surprise of co-pundit Micah Richards.
Sutton told The Monday Night Club: “I think Spurs front line leaves Arsenal’s for dead. There’s not one Arsenal player I could see who would get in front of Kane, Son and Kulusevski.”
Richards queried: “Saka?”, before Sutton stuck to his guns by adding: “I prefer Kulusevski.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Kulusevski has been very impressive for Tottenham so far and has quickly made his case for being one of the side’s most important players.
Saka has arguably been Arsenal’s best player this season and both players are young, but they have different qualities despite playing in the same position.
