High Expectations for William Saliba in Arsenal

Arsenal made a desperate attempt to get a player in the center-back position for their team during the transfer window in summer. The situation was ideal for them to sign a defender who has shown world class play earlier for improving their defensive side. But something of this sort did not happen. Instead of taking up an established and renowned player with a huge fee, they chose to sign up youngsters to challenge their rivals before the development of a level away from reputation and price range.  As a result of this, William Saliba agreed to the terms and signed with Arsenal.

He has been viewed as one of the young and talented players on the defensive side regarding world football. Last season, he got a chance into the first football team. Though, he has had the less senior experience, still, he was highly hyped during the course of European football. Currently, William is spending the year on loan. But huge expectations are on him by the team when he makes his return to Arsenal in the coming summer. They took the risk earlier because they thought that he might become an expensive and worthy player next summer for Arsenal to make the signing worthwhile.

INJURIES COULD SHAPE LEAGUE WINNER

Liverpool and Manchester City are the two favourites to lift the Premier League this season. However, one thing becoming pronounced is that a major factor to winning would be how they handle their injury crisis.

The Reds are missing Alisson Becker in goal. Naby Keita as an option in midfield and DivockOrigiupfront are not possible as they are sidelined. With James Milner’s output becoming below par, if anything happens to Trent Alexander-Arnold, there is no Nathaniel Clyne to step in as he remains in recovery from ACL injury.

Bernd Leno happy with his performances for Arsenal this season

Germany international Bernd Leno has acknowledged that he has experienced a relatively good season with Arsenal. The shot-stopper started the season as the second-choice to Petr Cech in goal but he managed to secure the number one role after the veteran suffered a hamstring injury midway through the Premier League game against Watford in October.

Since then, he has racked 23 starts in the English top-flight and most of his performances have been consistent enough to please the Gunners faithful. Speaking to Arsenal.com, Leno said: “I think I’ve played a good season and of course I need time to get a feeling and adapt to the league and my new team. Goalkeeper is a special person and I think I’m now in a good moment. I will keep working over the last eight games to show my best performances and help the team. I think today I did the same like weeks before. We are in the top four and now the other teams will wait for our mistakes.”

Leno has been criticised for the odd mistake during the course of the campaign but of late, he has been in brilliant form with point-blank saves against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, which have helped the club secure valuable points. At present, Arsenal are occupying the fourth position on the table, and they are holding a two and three-point advantage over Manchester United and Chelsea respectively for the final Champions League spot.

The team is at the top of the table with the same number of points as Manchester City and they have even played a game less than them, they are all set for the battle after 26 games which have been played. But the men of Klopp are still trying for the title and they also play the team from Munich at the Anfield as a part of the last 16 of the Champions League. When asked which of the given that the two of the titles will be harder to get the victory in, Wijnaldum said that it should actually be the Premier league which is harder given the high quality of the teams and the consistency that they have to maintain throughout.
