EPL: Martin Keown names Man of Match in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace

Arsenal legend, Martin Keown has hailed William Saliba after the Gunners’ victory over Crystal Palace in the opening game of Premier League on Friday.

The Frenchman attracted a great deal of praise for his performance in the 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.

The Gunners impressed in attack and kept a clean sheet at the back as they emerged victorious.

There was positivity directed to several of the Gunners’ XI but none more so than 21-year-old centre-back Saliba.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Keown said, “Saliba – the fella’s been at Arsenal now for three years and it’s the first time we’ve seen him.

“I think he should take a bow really because he deserved an opportunity far sooner than he got tonight.

“If it was me given the choice, I’d go with Saliba for Man of the Match.
