If you ask a random Premier League fan who the best player in the competition has been this season, they will probably pick Manchester City’s Erling Haaland.
The Norwegian has made a meal of most Premier League defences this season and continues to show the competition is simply too easy for him.
However, former Arsenal man, Bacary Sagna believes the best player in the competition this term has been Bukayo Saka.
The attacker is leading the Gunners towards winning the title for the first time in two decades and remains one man who can deliver in any game.
While Haaland scores the goals that City needs, Saka does more work on the field and Arsenal struggles when he has an off game.
Sagna is convinced he has been the best player in England this season. The ex-defender says via The Sun:
“He [Saka]’s been the best player in the Premier League this season.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Erling Haaland is crowned PFA Player of the Year but up until now I don’t see any other player that’s had a bigger impact on their team than Bukayo.”
Just Arsenal Opinion
We have had an amazing season thanks in part to the impact Saka has made on this team.
The Englishman continues to show he is the player we can trust to make us champions again.
It does not matter what impact Haaland makes at City, Saka is one of our own and he is serving us well.

I’m biased, but I could agree with Sagna. Though it might be between Saka and Odegard for me.
I feel if Haaland were to miss time through injury or suspension, Man City could revert back to playing a false nine and still be really good. May not have the point total they have, but they would probably still be at least second in the league at this point.
Arsenal miss these two players for an extended time, they wouldn’t be where they are now.
I think Thomas Partey for has been the best for Arsenal.
Saka has been immense, but Partey keep the team ticking.
I agree but this has me worried. Partey’s off-field issues are not in the limelight but they are present. Innocent until proven guilty is the law, but what I am hearing from the background is scary..
I want to win the league and many other competitions with Partey. He has proven himself as a major part of our line up…perhaps the key. But that scares me is wondering “what if.” What if he is guilty of these accusations? This is scary to me. I hope and pray all accusations are unfounded but the truth must come out.
I think saka is best player year
I think honestly Odegaard makes Saka and all our frontline better but experience shows me that we have won almost every game played by Partey. This simply means that he improves everyone both defesively and attack-wise. Unfortunately many eyes don’t notice him.
Harland scores many goals but our goals are spread through our attackers due to team-work. It’s simply a cross-functional team.
I’ll go with Partey
