Arsenal star storms into Premier League Power Rankings after Man City game

William Saliba has often been hailed as one of the top defenders in the Premier League, and his performance over the weekend served as evidence to support that claim.

The Frenchman draws comparisons to elite defenders like Virgil van Dijk and Raphael Varane, which speaks volumes about his potential given their accomplishments.

Arsenal is fortunate to have him, and his inclusion in the Gunners’ starting XI last season has undoubtedly contributed to the club’s success.

Saliba has consistently demonstrated excellence, and during the recent weekend fixture, he displayed his defensive prowess in a commanding manner against Erling Haaland and other Manchester City attackers.

Haaland is widely regarded as one of the most formidable strikers in the Premier League, yet Saliba effectively neutralised him, earning recognition and a place in the latest Premier League Power Rankings.

While discussing his inclusion, the Daily Mail added:

“Awarded Player of the Match by Gary Neville on Sky Sports, the centre back defended brilliantly in what was an impressive off-the-ball display from the best defensive side in the league.

“Erling Haaland barely had a sniff, and Saliba has become the Rolls Royce Arsenal had hoped he would become when they signed him for £25million four years ago.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

At the weekend, Saliba proved again why he is such a world-class player and was in terrific form, so he deserves his place in the rankings.


So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. Undoubtedly the best CB in the Prem and our best since CAMPBELL. In OUR best three CB’s ever too!

    1. I agree with you Jon. Saliba is very composed. His reading of the game is also top notch. Arsenal has the best defense in the league.

  2. Only Deshamps knows what he still wants from this lad again. He’s kept the highest clean sheet in the league, conceded the fewest goals, still scored 2 goals, yet Deschamps isn’t convinced.

    1. Maybe Deschamps likes those CB who would try anything possible to let opposition team to score Saliba ain’t any of that coz he would do anything possible to stop any player from scoring maybe that’s exactly what Deschamps don’t like and the only explanation i can give because what the French coach said was totally impossible.

  3. Not even knowing he was going to be this good, my heart jumped when almost lost out in retaining him after his return from loan spells.
    Thank God we succeeded in keeping him at Arsenal.
    I see a much much better Saliba next season when we must hace secured a killer striker and Timber is back to fitness.

  4. The kind of defensive steel William Saliba is offering is what exactly Arsenal FC had been missing before his arrival. Him and his CB defensive partner Gabriel are the type of defenders a good Premier league club must have before dreaming of trophies. Arsenal FC is indeed blessed to have that pair of defensive gurus.
