Ex United player Michael Owen is still not impressed with his former side’s complicated style of football.

Man Utd have lost 4 of their first 9 opening EPL games and are currently 8th on the league log.

For Arsenal, they are still unbeaten in the league and currently sit 3rd, with 21 points.

Owen comparing the two sides said, via Metro:

“It’s a pretty decent season, not by Manchester United’s standards but over the past few years. So that was a huge step forward on paper but visually I was not impressed and I wondered whether this was a true reflection of their ability at the time, and this season has only confirmed that in my mind.”

“The one thing I say to people is that if you put Man City in front of me and changed the colours of their shirts and the faces of the players, I could watch them for about 30 seconds and say that’s Manchester City playing there.”

“I could do the same with Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool and virtually every other team, including Brighton, they just have an identity.”
