"For Him, The Only Way Is Up" PL Legend Sends Arteta Message About Arsenal Talent

William Saliba is a gunner who many Arsenal fans wanted to see wear their jersey and shine on the pitch this season.During his loan spell with Marseille last season, the Ligue 1 young player of the year was spectacular, helping the club finish second.



Arteta was brave enough to play Saliba in Arsenal's league opener. The 21-year-old repaid Arteta's and the fans' faith by becoming the Man of the Match award.

The Frenchman looked cool and collected in his league debut for Arsenal against Palace, making the right challenges and correctly reading the game.



He won three duels, made many clearances, and blocked a short. In terms of aerial duels and take-ons, he was completely successful. Despite not making a foul, he managed to win back possession seven times for his team. With 48 passes attempted, he had a 93.8 passing accuracy. Additionally, he completed 6 passes in the final third.

Garry Neville believes he will succeed at Arsenal. As per hitc, the PL legend said, "You just know that he will get stronger, he will get more wise, and you know that in three years he is going to be one hell of a centre-back.

"He is a hell of a centre-back now, but when you see him in another two, three, four years’ time…"



I'm no prophet, but I, like Neville, believe that for Saliba, he can only get better.
