SALIBA SOUNDS THE ALARM: Arsenal Star Declares ‘War’ on Manchester City

Arsenal’s William Saliba Issues Challenge to Manchester City for Next Season


Arsenal’s dependable defender, William Saliba, has issued a stern warning to Manchester City as the teams prepare for the upcoming season.


Under Mikel Arteta’s leadership, Arsenal showcased a formidable defense, ending the season with the Premier League’s best defensive record.


Saliba, a central figure in Arsenal’s defense, believes his team is closing the gap with Manchester City. Last season, Arsenal contended fiercely for the Premier League title, pushing the race to the final day. City ultimately secured their fourth consecutive title, finishing just two points ahead after a decisive victory over West Ham.


Integral to Arsenal’s strong performance, Saliba earned a spot in the PFA Team of the Year for the 2022/23 season. He played every minute of this season’s Premier League matches, with Arsenal conceding only 29 goals.


Speaking to French publication L’Equipe before the European Championships in Germany, Saliba expressed confidence in Arsenal’s progress. “We played against City three times last season and gave them a tough time,” he said. “Both they and we sense that we are getting closer. Next year, the battle will be even more intense.”


Saliba, known for his reliability and consistency, also asserted his place among the Premier League’s top defenders. “I consider myself in the top three defenders in the league,” he stated. “We’ve had the best defense, and I watch a lot of games. Despite my humility, I believe my performances last season and this season place me among the best.”


He emphasized his improvement and commitment to excellence. “I must continue working to reach higher levels, but my concentration has greatly improved. Previously, I might have excelled in a match but had lapses in focus. That is no longer the case; I remain vigilant throughout.”
