Mikel Arteta told the 'underrated' Arsenal star who is so important for Bukayo Saka

Premier League legend Michael Owen has claimed that Arsenal right-back Ben White is underrated following Sunday’s 4-1 win over Crystal Palace.

The Gunners delivered a dominant display against the Eagles, with goals from Gabriel Martinelli, Granit Xhaka and a Bukayo Saka brace securing all three points for Mikel Arteta’s side. That result means they are now eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table, although they have played one more league match than second-placed Manchester City.

Following yesterday’s victory, former Liverpool striker Owen has heaped praise on the north Londoners whilst identifying defender White as the club’s most underrated asset. When asked about White’s partnership with Saka, Owen replied: “That partnership was particularly impressive.

“That combination play is very important for Arsenal. Ben White gets forward, he links the play and has the pace to get back when he needs to.

“There was a lovely moment towards the end of the game where he made a tackle and was celebrating. I feel he’s a bit of an underrated player for Arsenal at the moment.”

White assisted Saka’s first goal against Palace whilst also registering three clearances, three interceptions, one tackle and three successful duels.
