Robbie Savage claims Harry Maguire is ‘better’ than Arsenal player

Robbie Savage has claimed he will take Manchester United’s Harry Maguire over Arsenal defender Ben White “right now”, as he told BBC 606.

The former midfielder left fellow pundit Chris Sutton stunned with his admission about the Manchester United and Arsenal duo.

As Maguire proved in the Manchester derby this weekend, the England centre-back is seriously struggling with form and that big price tag on his shoulder is proving to be a disaster.

It’s a different storyline in north London because White is playing a big part in Arsenal taking the wheel in the race to finish in the Champions League places this season.

But, when Savage was asked who was better and who he would take between Maguire and White, he gave that answer in a conversation with former striker, Sutton.

“Seriously, who would have done it, Ben White or Harry Maguire? If you had to pick one,” Sutton asked.

Savage replied, “Right now I would still have Harry Maguire. Who would Gareth Southgate choose?

On who plays better between the two: “Ben White doesn’t play very well. Does he play well? I would take Harry Maguire over Ben White right now.

Sutton replied: “Oh come on! Ben White is playing better than Harry Maguire!? Who’s playing better at the moment? We’re talking about club form.

At the start of the season, when Arsenal paid Brighton big money for White, there was a lot of criticism of the club.

Many felt they were making a mistake by pouring money on a player who wasn’t even an England regular, didn’t go to Euro 2020 and only had one season to go. his assets in the Premier League.

But Mikel Arteta saw something in the ball-carrying defender and now they are paying the rewards.

Arsenal have kept 11 clean sheets this season – only the top two – Manchester City and Liverpool have kept more.
