MICHAEL OWEN believes Arsenal have a new Cristiano Ronaldo on their hands in youngster Bukayo Saka. The former Liverpool striker was waxing lyrical over the 17-year-old following his performance against Qarabag in the Europa League. Bukayo Saka impressed on his full debut for Arsenal in the win over Qarabag Arsenal ran out 1-0 winners and Saka, who made his full debut, tormented the opposition defence with his raw talent and ability. He could have capped his performance with a goal but his strike was straight at the keeper. And Owen believes Saka showed glimpses that he could rise to the very top, even comparing him to five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo. Speaking to BT Sport after the game, he said: “He looked really nervous at the start of the game, myself and Martin were both talking about it. The talented forward was showered with praise from Michael Owen and his manager Owen even likened the youngster to Cristiano Ronaldo “But he certainly grew into the game. Just him having the courage to run at players was really refreshing to see. “Some of the skill… I watched Ronaldo doing this the other day for Juventus. “It’s absolutely brilliant and so unlucky that it wasn’t given a goal. “He’s just different class and by the end of the game, his confidence was oozing. It looks like @Arsenal could have a ⭐️ on their hands in Bukayo Saka… "I watched Ronaldo doing that for Juventus the other day!" 🙌 pic.twitter.com/1zwIxHZ87I — Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) December 13, 2018 He troubled Qarabag’s defence throughout with his raw talent [article-rail-topic title=”latest Arsenal news” term_id=”880″ posts_number=”6″ /] [bc_video video_id=”5978731128001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Arsenal star Mesut Ozil returns to training amid rumours of a Manchester United move “] “I just wish that he hadn’t gone for power here [when one-on-one with the goalkeeper].” Arsenal boss Unai Emery also heaped praise on the talent and singled out his “big personality.” The Spaniard added: “They show us in every match positive things. And today Saka also, he played with a good performance with a very big personality, “Not every action was good for us, but his personality is very important to continue in the second half trying to do one-on-ones and break lines with his quality. “He played with a very big personality for the 90 minutes, and with sometimes a good performance. And for him it’s very important for his confidence.”
