Rio Ferdinand has raved about William Saliba’s composure on the ball.
Speaking on BT Sport, he said: “I think his composure, he’s very strong, mobile but it’s the composure in the pressure situations.
“He was the most composed centre-back on the pitch today – especially for Arsenal.
“There were times today where in transition, Arsenal could’ve got hurt but how many times did we see him come out with the ball.
“At the top level, you need to be calm, composed in these situations and at the moment, he’s showing that beyond his years but he has had to be patient and going away which shows he’s got character.
“I’m sure he’ll have a good career going here, he’s only been here short amount of time but he’s already become a fan favourite.”
