Pundit Garth Crooks has named William Saliba in his team of the week following Arsenal’s win over Manchester city in the league yesterday.

The pundit went further by comparing the young French defender to club legend Sol Campbell.

Saliba and Magalhães kept Haaland at bay the entire 90 minutes. Crooks writing in his column for the BBC stated:

‘I rate Saliba as highly as I rated Sol Campbell. The France international has the same kind of presence in defence as the former England man and is just as quick.What no-one can legislate for is whether Saliba can remain fit.’

‘It’s highly unlikely he can go an entire season without some sort of injury and if his fitness does falter can the Gunners survive without him? Should Saliba get injured and Arsenal find that they can survive without him, then they must really fancy their chances of lifting the title.’
