The return of Saliba to unlock the best in others?
William Saliba has returned to Arsenal to play a first-team role, and it could be perfect for his teammates.
The Gunners looked to be lining up with a 3-5-2 formation today, with Ben White swapping between RCB and RB, and it couldn’t have worked better.
We pulled off a 6-0 win with an utterly impressive performance from start to finish, and I can’t wait to see more of the system.

Oleksandr Zinchenko and Bukayo Saka were given the wing-back roles, and both are certainly worth pursuing in those positions, while Gabriel Martinelli was dangerous on the wing and acted as a second striker.
I can’t help but think White is perfect for the RCB role in a line, and Saliba’s return just might mean we could still see a lot more of him.
