'Hand it to him ASAP!' Rio Ferdinand claims Bukayo Saka 'is the Premier League young player of the year ALREADY' after his superb display in the win over Brighton... as he says Erling Haaland should win the senior prize

  • Arsenal secured an impressive 4-2 win against Brighton on New Year's Eve
  • Bukayo Saka opened the scoring for the Gunners in just the second minute
  • It takes his tally this season to six goals in 16 Premier League appearances
  • Rio Ferdinand felt the 21-year-old was already 'young player of the season'
  • He added that Manchester City's Erling Haaland could take the 'senior award' 

Rio Ferdinand has been full of praise for Arsenal's Bukayo Saka, arguing he is 'young player of the year already'.

The 21-year-old opened the scoring in just the second minute as Arsenal beat Brighton 4-2 on New Year's Eve, sending them seven points clear at the top of the Premier League.

He has now scored six league goals for the Gunners this season and become a vital cog in a team bidding for the title.

For Ferdinand, there is no better player of his age in the country, as he

that 'Saka is PL young player of the year already, hand it to him asap!'

The winger's excellent form this season follows two breakthrough year's under Mikel Arteta that saw him win consecutive club player of the season awards.

He has also become a regular for England and scored seven goals in 24 appearances for the national team.

The former Manchester United defender also felt that the senior player of the season award was also decided, as he added 'give it to Haaland while you're at it!'

He added that Erling Haaland could take the 'senior award' after scoring 21 goals in 15 games

Erling Haaland has been electric so far this season, reaching 21 goals in just 15 league games as Manchester City have reached second.

He still has more goals than nine Premier Leagues sides and appears unaffected by his break from football after Norway failed to qualify for the World Cup.

If Ferdinand's predictions are correct, the two players of the season could be in a showdown for the league title.

Saka'a Arsenal are currently in the driving seat, but history suggests they may start to struggle in February, while City tend to find a way to win.
