'I feel he's a bit of an underrated player': Michael Owen hails Ben White as the unsung hero of Arsenal's title challenge while heaping praise on the defender's 'impressive' partnership with Bukayo Saka in Crystal Palace win

Michael Owen has sung the praises of Arsenal defender Ben White and hailed him as 'underrated' following the Gunners' 4-1 win over Crystal Palace.

Mikel Arteta's men extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to eight points, as two goals from Bukayo Saka and further strikes from Gabriel Martinelli and Granit Xhaka saw Arsenal put their midweek European exit behind them.

The Gunners were dumped out of the Europa League by Sporting Lisbon on Thursday, but remain on course for their first Premier League triumph since 2004 following their dominant derby victory.
