Despite being a natural centre back, Ben White has been outstanding in the right back role. With the loan return of William Saliba, Arteta needed to find a way to include White in his starting lineup. As a result, a compromise was reached by playing white at right back.

The gamble paid off, and White is now one of the league’s best right backs.

He stated via Football Insider:
