Ex-player reveals how Saliba’s impress outing has “exposed” this player



Former Tottenham Hotspur player Jermaine Jenas says the impressive performance of William Saliba has ‘exposed’ Gabriel Magalhaes at Arsenal this season.


Saliba has made an immediate impact this season after returning from his successful loan spell with a solid partnership alongside Gabriel at the heart of Arsenal’s defence.



According to Jenas Saliba’s performances this season have upstaged Gabriel, who gave away the penalty in Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday.


“I just feel like Saliba has elevated the level that it’s just exposed Gabriel a little bit,’ Jenas told Vibe with Five.

‘He’s [Gabriel] still very good, he’s still a very good centre-half.

‘But all of a sudden you’re looking at Saliba and you’re going, ‘we need another one of you’.


‘He’s [Gabriel] still doing his job, he made a big impact last year.



‘I think they’re still a bit light, I look at their midfield I think they’re a little bit light. At the minute I think they are performing at their highest level, and there’s only one way to go.’


Meanwhile, both players have enjoyed good partnership, reason why Ben White, a central defender was drafted to the right back position, keeping Arsenal top on the log after 8 games.
