Rennes, of course, went into the game off the back of an impressive 2-2 draw with Tottenham in the Europa Conference League on Thursday.

Unlike Spurs, Saliba is able to boast a clean sheet against Bruno Genesio’s side. Marseille ran out 2-0 winners on Sunday.

He found a teammate with 66 of his 67 passes. Interestingly, he also had two attempts on goal for the home side at Stade Velodrome (Whoscored).

Unsurprisingly, Saliba’s performance did not escape the attention of Arsenal fans on social media.

Of course, there was a lot of anger when he was given the green light to leave the Gunners on loan once again in the summer.

Many remain adamant that he is amongst Arsenal’s best options at centre-back. And they have implored Mikel Arteta to make sure he gets a chance upon his return.
