Arsenal fans react to Ben White display vs Tottenham
A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Ben White after the defender’s display in the North London derby against Tottenham on Sunday.
What’s the story?
The Gunners snatched the North London bragging rights in emphatic fashion at the Emirates.
First-half goals from Emile Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka set Arsenal on their way to a 3-1 victory.
It was a stunning display from Arsenal, who blew their rivals away before the break.
And one of those who produced an outstanding performance was White, with many lauding the summer signing on social media.
White is yet to convince all of the Arsenal fans, it seems. The 23-year-old, of course, arrived for a huge fee. And his cause was not helped by fan favourite William Saliba being loaned out again before getting a proper chance.
He has shown glimpses of his quality. But many felt that he produced his best display yet for the Gunners.
As shown by Whoscored, he made four interceptions. No player on either side made more than the England international.
Several have insisted that he had Harry Kane and Son Heung-min in his back pocket. And plenty have expressed their excitement about the partnership building between himself and Gabriel Magalhaes.
‘What a player’: Arsenal fans react to Ben White display vs Tottenham
Admittedly, some will clearly need to be convinced further about White. It would appear that a minority refuse to get carried away as they were not as impressed as others.
But most felt that he was brilliant.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Arsenal fans made of White’s performance…

Hope Ben White is given plenty of praise today, an outstanding performance. So aggressive in the duels, both on the ground and in the air, and he showcased his prowess in this aspect for the first goal, winning the header against Kane upfield.

Credit where it’s due Ben White and Xhaka were immense

Best Auba has looked in ages, Saka and ESR superb, Thomas is wonderful. Ben White’s best game for us. Ramsdale continues to prove the critics when he signed wrong. What a performance. The Arsenal.

Used to Gabriel being absolutely amazing, but that’s Ben White’s best performance in an Arsenal shirt by far. If those two keep getting a better understanding, it’s going to be one hell of a partnership. Bullied Kane.
