Arsenal Star Who Proved Yesterday He Will Be One of The Toughest Defenders to Beat in England

Arsenal was good defensively against Sevilla yesterday in their last pre-season match this summer. The Gunners had a clean sheet and ensured Julen Lopetegui's men had only one shot on target.

Mikel Arteta ended the tour in a style sending a clear message to Premier League rivals after the big win over the La Liga club. The Gunners scored six goals at the Emirates yesterday proving they are more than ready for the new season.

They have been amazing in the friendlies this summer with most of the players doing a great job on the tour. Gabriel Jesus, Bukayo Saka, and Edward Nketiah were the scorers for Arsenal in the match at the Emirates yesterday.

The Brazilian forward scored his first Arsenal hat-trick, with Bukayo Saka scoring a brace while Nketiah scored the last goal of the match. Mikel Arteta's men dominate the match and had a whopping 21 goal attempts in the entire.

The side was also good at the back and they kept another clean sheet after they ensured Chelsea didn't get a goal last weekend in their American tour.

French center-back William Saliba was brilliant in the back three yesterday and he and made sure the opponents won't get a goal in the match. The 21-year-old star outplayed the likes of Ben White and Gabriel Magalhães who are more experienced defenders than him.

Saliba played a big part in the win and he was the leader of Arsenal's backline despite being the youngest defender. The center-back read the game well, made accurate tackles, and cut some fine through balls from Sevilla.

If Salibe will get to play more often in the Premier League next season most of the top strikers and forwards will have a hard time trying to beat him
