Arsenal fans joke William Saliba is ‘dangerous but good’ after chaotic, brilliant sequence in PSV Champions League win
ARSENAL FANS were left in awe after a brief moment of panic when William Saliba worked himself out of trouble during their 4-0 thrashing of PSV.
The Frenchman has already established himself as one of the best defenders in the Premier League and he showed his skills on the Champions League stage last night.
Saliba was running back to his own goal with the ball at his feet in the second half at the Emirates Stadium when he realised PSV’s Noa Lang was hot on his tail.
The 22-year-old remained calm and turned away from trouble with ease, but he found himself in a compromising situation with Ismael Saibari now charging at him.
But in a wonderfully sharp and silky move the centre-back evaded the oncoming pressure witch a quick two touch that saw him drag the ball away from Saibari with his right foot and then take a touch past him with his left.
Saliba then turned and charged into midfield bringing the ball away from trouble and maintaining possession for Arsenal.
And although it all turned out well for him and the Gunners, some Arsenal fans still had their hearts in their mouths watching the sequence of play.
Many took to social media to react to the incredible passage of play.
One joked: “He’s so good. Dangerous, but good!”
Whilst another added: “He’s nicknamed Rolls Royce for a reason.”

A third said: “He’s not just a defender, but a beast too.”
And one fan even made a huge claim after seeing Saliba’s skills, they said: “William Saliba is the best defender in the Premier League.”
Arsenal looked just as confident as their towering centre-back on their return to Champions League football.
They breezed past PSV with goals from Gabriel Jesus, Leandro Trossard, Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard.
Mikel Arteta will be hoping his side replicate their superb performance on Sunday when they play host to their fierce rivals Tottenham in the Premier League.
