Arsenal: Gabriel is the Defense Leader, Player Wonders Why Arteta Exiled Saliba, Ben White Slammed

Gabriel Magalhaes 

Arsenal’s center back Gabriel Magalhaes has been noticed to be Arsenal’s main anchor at the heart of the defense, contrary to what many fans expected in the new season. Many fans expected Ben White to be the golden wall in the defense but going by the recent performances, Gabriel is the one who is doing all the dirty work at the defense.

Gabriel is however prone to small mistakes and fouls, but so far, he has been very disciplined and calm. One can easily say that he is an indispensable member of Mikel Arteta’s starting eleven for this season. Pablo Mari is also a solid defender on the pitch but ever since he was bullied by Lukaku in the London derby three weeks ago, things have not been the same for him in the squad.

William Saliba

Questions around Mikel Arteta’s decision to exile William Saliba are still mounting especially after ex Saint Etienne player Loic Perrin admitted that he was surprised that Arsenal’s technical bench did not even try to play the defender for a single match. Perrin said that William Saliba is a wasted talent at Arsenal and when his time at Arsenal runs out, Arsenal will regret dearly for not ever giving him a chance of playing for them.

Perrin said that Saliba was a great shield at defense, probably the best defender in the French League in his opinion. He also praised the player’s commitment to training and also his profound respect for fellow teammates at the club. He added that Saliba would make a really good leader for a team such as Arsenal which is blessed with so many young and talented players. Perrin finished by saying that he hopes Arsenal realize their mistake before it is too late.

Ben White

Arsenal’s Ben White has been on the receiving end of a lot of criticisms from fans and pundits alike. One such pundit is Arsenal William Gallas who questioned Edu’s sanity when he decided to sign Ben White for €50 Million because the 23-year-old has not lived up to his price tag. He has urged Ben White to pull up his socks and defend his worth because if he continues playing dismally, then he might be a regular bench warmer.
