Arsenal centre-back William Saliba, who played every minute of Arsenal’s campaign in the past season, has made a bold and confident statement about his abilities. Reflecting on his performance, Saliba, who is just 23 years old, has positioned himself among the elite defenders in the Premier League.

In an interview with L’Équipe, Saliba asserted, “I think I am in the top three [defenders in the league]. We finished with the best defence. I watch a lot of matches. I am a very humble person but last season, just like this season, I am in the top three defenders.” This declaration underscores not only his self-belief but also his recognition of his significant contributions to Arsenal’s defensive solidity.

The 2023/24 season was a testament to Saliba’s prowess, as Arsenal concluded their campaign in 2nd place with 89 points, just behind Manchester City, who secured the title with 91 points. Saliba’s consistency and resilience were key factors in Arsenal boasting one of the strongest defences in the league. His ability to read the game, combined with his physical presence and composure under pressure, earned him widespread acclaim.

Saliba’s journey at Arsenal has been marked by rapid development and an increasing influence on the pitch. Since joining the Gunners, he has grown into a formidable defender, integral to Mikel Arteta’s plans. His full-season performance without missing a single minute is a testament to his fitness, reliability, and importance to the team.

As Arsenal gear up for another challenging season, Saliba’s confidence will be crucial. His bold claim to be among the top three defenders in the league sets high expectations, not only for himself but also for the team. With such a cornerstone in their defence, Arsenal will be looking to build on their successes and aim for the Premier League title in the upcoming season. Saliba’s presence and performance will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in their quest for glory.

I just love writing and football so much ever since the 2000's when football got popular in our country. I am a self esteemed person who believes is am always right.
