ARTETA’S PRAISE OF SALIBA

Former Premier League winger, Yannick Bolasie, was watching him in action and he made it clear on Twitter that no-one is running past Arsenal’s 21-year-old defender.

Given that Arsenal fans haven’t seen the player in action in the Premier League, then they will be more prone to wanting to see him start at Crystal Palace on the opening day of the new campaign.

Patrick Vieira’s side were one of the teams that dented Arsenal’s chances of securing Champions League football last season when they beat them at Selhurst Park.

Palace have one of the quickest forward lines in the Premier League, with Wilfried Zaha hoping to cause his usual problems against the team he supported as a boy.

Therefore, it will be interesting if Arteta opts to push for Saliba instead of someone like Ben White, who was used as a right-back during the club’s pre-season thrashing of Chelsea.

After returning from his loan spell at Marseille, the ball-playing defender has looked like a better-accomplished player and someone that has been one of his side’s standout performers in pre-season.

But will that be enough for Arteta to break up Gabriel and White’s partnership? Well, if things go wrong, then he can’t have the excuses that he doesn’t have the options now.
