Gabriel and White Defensive Partnership Wins Arsenal Their Game Against Brenford Today.

Benjamin White having been acquired from Brighton has played one game with Pablo Mari at the center of defence against Brenford FC which Arsenal lost 2:0 in the first game of the current league season.

Benjamin White is a versatile defender whose strength lies in his passing and on a one vs one situation hence when linked with Gabriel Magalhaes it will prove to be one of its kind as it has been seen today in the closed door friendly between Arsenal and Brenford.

Mikel Arteta likes setting up his team in such away that the build up starts from the defense before the midfield players link with the strikers.

The set up has three defenders at the back with fullbacks operating as wingbacks. This set up brings the best out of Ben White as it was evident during his days at Brighton. His partnership with Gabriel will prove to be the best option for Arsenal Football club amongst all the defensive pairs used by Mikel Arteta before.

Gabriel is aggresive and also good in the air and this will complement Whites abilities. In today friendly with Brenford, Mikel Arteta started with three defenders at the back pairing Gabriel, White and Mari and it proved to be hard for Brenford players to beat, the game ended in favour of Arsenal with Laccazette and Gabriel scoring one goal each and Cedric scoaring two.

It will interesting to see how Mikel sets up his team after the international break.
