William Saliba was one of the best defenders for Arsenal in the Premier League match against Crystal Palace. The French center-back played a big part in the Gunners keeping a clean sheet in their first game of the season.
He played alongside Ben White and Gabriel Magalhães a back three which was solid against Patrick Viera's men and they ensured the hosts had only two shots on target in the entire match.
Saliba was also the man of the match winner against Palace on Friday after his impressive performance in the defense. He was the key defender in the match and he has started being compared to some of the big defenders in the Premier League.
The Gunners were good defensively due to the impact made by William Saliba who has proved he has what it takes to be the next breakthrough player for Arsenal.
The team has some top defenders like Gabriel Magalhães and Ben White has been good at the club and it will bring a tactical problem for Mikel Arteta as he will have three top center-backs at the club.
However, if the Spaniard will switch back to using two center-backs he could mostly play Gabriel Magalhaes next to Saliba this season after their performance yesterday. The Brazilian center-back has been one of the best defenders in the Premier League since he joined Arsenal.
Gabriel has made Arsenal have a good defense in the last one year and he has ensured the team has been difficult to beat. He had a connection together last night and they could form a great backline together.
William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes will be a nightmare to Premier League opponents this season and they could play a big part in Arsenal's success.
