Saliba takes part in the Arsenal festival against Brentford

Against Brentford, Arsenal proved intractable (3-0) and confirmed their first place in the Premier League standings. A success in which William Saliba participated again by opening hostilities.

First game of the 2021-22 season, Arsenal kicked off their season in the worst possible way by hanging against promoted Brentford, 0-2. A year later, the situation is very different. The Gunners no longer have anything to do with this training in distress on the ground, and the Bees learned it this Sunday (3-0, for the Gunners).

After a more than successful loan to Marseille, William Saliba finally saw his coach Mikel Arteta trust him and install him in the central hinge this season. A decision that the Spaniard certainly does not regret. In addition to offering solidity behind, the Frenchman is even decisive. In the 16th minute, the international received a corner kick, allowing the Londoners to open the scoring and score his second goal of the season. This marks the start of the recital for visitors. A recruit will even take the opportunity to launch his English adventure.

Vieira’s Cannonball

No, it’s not about Gabriel Jesus. Arrived this summer from Manchester City, the striker no longer needs to prove his qualities to his new supporters. Aligning goal on goal since his arrival, the Brazilian continued his momentum by offering the break to his team. But it is not necessarily this goal that the fans will remember.

Vieira, a name that certainly brings back very good memories for the Gunners. But it’s not about Patrick who had excelled in the midfield several years ago. Now it’s time for Fabio, who also arrived during the last transfer window from FC Porto. Injured, the Portuguese could not take part in the first meetings, but since the beginning of the month he has been scrounging up playing time. For his first tenure in England, Vieira distinguished himself by already opening his counter thanks to a sublime strike started from outside the area to score the third goal.

This success allows the Londoners to confirm their first place in the standings, and to reassure themselves after the surprise defeat against Manchester United (3-1). All this before the London derby which will come after the international break against Tottenham on October 1. The Spurs are also having a good start to the season and are in 3rd place with a one unit difference over their rival.
