Gabriel Jesus, an Arsenal striker, has praised William Saliba as “the best” in the team.
After making his Gunners debut in the 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace last Friday, Saliba was chosen as Man of the Match.
Along with Gabriel Magalhaes in the centre of defence, the 21-year-old made crucial blocks and tackles while maintaining a clean sheet.
Gabriel told the London Evening Standard: “For me, he’s the best! He’s very young, very promising and a very good player.
“I am so happy to play with him, together. He has now started in the Premier League and he was so good.
“The team did very well. They showed intensity and everyone stayed together.
“It’s very difficult to play here, but our keeper was strong. I believe in this team and it was very good. We got a clean sheet and three very good points.”
