‘He Is Going To Dominate’ ‘Best Young Defender In The Prem’ Fans Expecting Big Things From Arsenal Star After Strong Pre Season

Arsenal centre-back William Saliba had a superb pre-season with the Gunners, having not conceded during the 282 minutes he was on the pitch.

After three loan spells away from the Emirates, it seems manager Mikel Arteta is finally convinced that the France international is ready to be part of the first-team squad.

A lot of fans on Twitter are predicting that Saliba could go on and make a huge impression this campaign, although a few are trying to keep expectations in check:


Saliba undoubtedly deserves to start the first Premier League match against Crystal Palace on Friday, but it will be interesting to see who he partners in the centre of defence.

Arteta went with a back three during the 6-0 friendly win against Sevilla at the weekend, so he could play alongside both Ben White and Gabriel. If they do revert to a back four at Selhurst Park, though, somebody will have to miss out.
