Arsenal fans love what William Saliba did for Nice against PSG

Nice were beaten 2-1 by PSG in Ligue 1 on Saturday and after a spirited performance by the visitors, Arsenal fans raved about their on-loan defender William Saliba.

The Frenchman didn’t get a look in during the first half of the 2020/21 campaign at the Emirates Stadium, departing on loan in January.

Some supporters were massively against such a deal, believing the £27 million signing from Saint-Etienne should have been handed more of a chance.

The £40,000-a-week centre-back has made nine appearances for Nice and will hope to play his way into Arteta’s thoughts for next season.

Goals from Julian Draxler and Moise Kean put Saliba’s team to the sword at the weekend but that didn’t stop Arsenal fans raving about the youngster’s performance.

Some footage emerged of the gem showing some fancy footwork during his Saturday display and Arsenal fans still believe he should be at Arsenal.

The form of Gabriel, Rob Holding and David Luiz has hampered his progress at the Emirates Stadium and perhaps the loan move will do him good.

Following his display against the French champions, Arsenal fans took to Twitter to discuss the 19-year-old.

Here is what the Gunners fan base had to say.
