Martin Keown and Michael Owen have both given their view on why Arsenal’s younger players are outperforming Manchester United’s this season.
Both Arsenal and United have blooded plenty of youngsters already this season.
Midfielder Joe Willock has featured nine times for Arsenal, whereas teenagers Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Reiss Nelson have all scored at least once in their outings.
Seventeen-year-old striker Mason Greenwood has notched a couple of goals for United but other youngsters have flattered to deceive in the Europa League and Carabao Cup.
Former Arsenal defender Keown believes the Gunners youngsters are coming into a more settled side than United’s are.
“They’re coming in to a more settled structure at Arsenal,” he said on BT Sport.
“I can see what Arsenal are trying to deliver and each player is almost a copy isn’t it, you saw the midfield quite structured in there.
“There’s a better balance than what we’re seeing [at United], it’s almost on a wing and a prayer for a Manchester United youngster to come in and do well.
