Is Williams saliba the best defender in the premier league right now?
Arsenal’s Premier League home record when William Saliba starts:
◉ 21 games
◉ 16 wins
◉ 4 draws
◉ 1 defeat
A 76.2% win ratio.
The stat above tells all you need to know about Saliba this so far, he’s one of Arsenal’s most important players and has been one of the best defenders in the league this season so far by some reasonable distance.
Well with his rate of defending this season I can say he is the best at the moment.
Saliba fits Arsenal like a glove. He has barely put a foot wrong in Arteta’s side, purring through games with a vanishingly rare blend of timing, physicality and speed. He praises the quality of Premier League strikers from top to bottom, but the fact is that hardly any have beaten him one-on-one.
