Former Premier League star, Dean Ashton has hailed Arsenal star, William Saliba following his performance in the Gunner 2-0 over Crystal Palace on Friday night.
The Gunners have started their 2022-23 Premier League season on a very bright note, beating Patrick Vieira’s side 2-0.
But many pundits took notice of 21-year-old French star, William and Ashton told talkSPORT, “Saliba – for someone so young, I was really, really impressed.
“A couple of times that he stepped in and helped his full-back out – I know it’s only a small thing, but the timing, the way he dealt with the situation, I think showed some real class.
“And he’s almost, not come out of nowhere, but he’s not somebody that Arsenal maybe thought was gonna start and look really, really good.”
Before the kick-off of the 2022-23 season, many pundits believed that Arsenal will not only be challenging for the top four this season but may go ahead to battle Manchester City and Liverpool for the title.
The Gunners have recruited the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City among others are still active in the transfer market.
