But, we all know, World class Rashford will pip them both.
Yes indeed, the media have started to push the agenda already.
I heard Saka and Player of the Season mentioned today based on what he did at the WC and on Arsenal performances.
So what precisely have Rashford or Saka achieved this season?
Rashford is part of a team that have risen to the dizzy heights of fourth, have won nothing this season (yet), playing in a league and at a club he is familiar with.
Saka is part of a team that have won nothing this season (yet) and don't play in the CL, playing in a league and at a club he is familiar with.
Neither have set new records or raised the bar when compared with previous 'greats'.
Haaland has not just broken records, he has smashed them, playing in an unfamiliar league and at a new club he is unfamiliar with.
He has won nothing this season (yet), like Rashford and Saka, but he has set new records and standards for future strikers.
If a vote was taken now,after 20 games, Haaland should be Player of the Season. Hands down.
That might change but to suggest Rashford or Saka should be player of the season at this point in time is utter tripe.
Footnote: England did fuck all at the WC, came home early so what precisely did Saka do at the WC that deserves Player of the Season - more fucking nonsense.
