Thierry Henry: "Kylian Mbappe is a better player than Erling Haaland"

Despite outstanding performance from both of the players, the Arsenal and France legend Thierry Henry believes the Man City star is not on the same level as Kylian Mbappe.

Haaland and

Kylian Mbappe

both scored twice as their sides started their Champions League campaign victorious. While

Manchester City

beat Sevilla 4-0, the Parisians had a harder job against


winning 2-1.

The Premier League champions signed

Erling Haaland

for a reported £51 million deal from


this summer, and the Norwegian fast-tracked his career at City scoring nine goals in his first five Premier League appearances.


Thierry Henry

 believes the Norwegian has a lot to do to reach the level of the

Paris Saint-Germain

star. The Gunners’ legend said on



"Mbappe can create and finish. Haaland doesn't create. He finishes. Mbappe can play on the right and on the left. He can play in the middle. Haaland can only play in the middle.


"He is a magnificent player and with him they can win the Champions League last year. Against Real Madrid, if it was him at the end of those chances that they missed, they will have been focused on scoring one or two. For now, Mbappe is still my vote."

Manchester City will host


for their next Premier League game this Saturday before another Champions League clash with Dortmund.
