Darren Bent says he would rather have Kai Havertz in the current Arsenal side than Marcus Rashford.

Former Premier League striker Darren Bent says he would rather have Kai Havertz in the current Arsenal side than Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford.

 

Havertz struggled to make an immediate impact with Mikel Arteta’s side following his surprise £65 million move from Chelsea in the summer.

 

But the Germany international may have potentially turned a corner after scoring the winner against Brentford last weekend, before finding the net in the 6-0 win over Lens in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.

 

Rashford, meanwhile, has scored just one goal in his last 13 appearances for United and has faced calls to be dropped from Erik ten Hag’s side.

 

Asked if he would prefer to have Havertz over Rashford in the current Arsenal side, Bent told talkSPORT: ‘Right now, for what Arteta wants to do, yes. Currently where we are now, give me Havertz.

 

‘I don’t want Rashford at the minute. I don’t know what I’m getting from Rashford.

 

Rashford has got two [goals]. For starters, he’s [Havertz] not appalling. This is not the lifetime achievement award.

 

‘Last season, after the World Cup, Rashford was unbelievable. I’ve not seen that Rashford since.

 

‘Right now, give me Kai Havertz over Rashford.

 

Meanwhile, Arteta has suggested that Havertz did not feel ‘loved’ and ‘respected’ during his final season at Chelsea.

 

‘He’s been so influential, his confidence has grown,’ Arteta said.

 

‘When you’re loved and admired and respected your energy and body language is so much better. That is how he is feeling now.’
