However, teammate Masuaku believes that the former Stoke City forward is having these comparisons forced on him because of the bad boy reputation that followed Arnautović to London Stadium last summer.
He only joined the Premier League side in January for £9 million from Preston North End but has struggled to make an impact at the London Stadium.
Ramadan Sobhi and Moritz Bauer had early efforts saved easily by Hart as Stoke showed plenty of attacking ambition in the opening exchanges.

School board president Mona Kirk said there were 15 completed applications received and six were selected from that pool. "We will win this vote on the merits of the fine referendum you have constructed with the commissioners", she said.
With the tempo rising, Arnautovic hit the target with a powerful near-post drive only to find Butland in the way, the England goalkeeper in ideal position to block the effort with his face. On the first occasion Marko Arnautovic was offside when he headed home - and then he was interfering with play from Edimilson Fernandes' shot.
Diouf then missed Stoke's clearest chance, turning a Bauer pullback over the crossbar with a first-time strike that wasted a risky break.

The former England global quickly came up with a massive moment for his side, showing attacking instinct to ram home the loose ball after Hart somehow let Shaqiri's strike slip out of his grasp.
Victory would have moved second-bottom Stoke above Southampton and three points from the safety zone but they failed to hold on and Andy Carroll came off the bench to show his quality with a superb volley past Jack Butland.

West Ham ace Carroll reflected on the last-gasp handball that put paid to a potential victor from Javier Hernandez.
"If they'd done that at the start of the season there'd be no way they'd be in this position, absolutely no way".
Stoke is likely to need at least three wins from its final four games to stay up.
Clearly vice-chairman Karren Brady didn't get the memo about just how important Monday's game was, though, judging by her PR blunder 15 minutes before the game.
A win for West Ham would nearly guarantee their Premier League survival, whilst a victory for the Potters would keep their hopes alive, moving up a spot and to within three points of safety.
