Darren Bent thinks William Saliba would get into Invincibles team

Arsenal go into the final day of this season still with a chance of winning the Premier League title; for what would be their first since 2004.


Of course, the team which won that title was arguably the greatest the Premier League has seen, with Arsene Wenger overseeing a campaign in which his side won 26 games, drew 12 – and lost none.

This current squad holds a special place in the hearts of many long-suffering Arsenal fans, and perhaps the jewel in the crown has emerged as William Saliba.

Saliba has arguably been the best defender in the Premier League this term, despite missing out on a nomination for the Player of the Season award. The Gunners have conceded just 28 goals in 37 games so far.

And speaking on talkSPORT, Darren Bent suggested that he would pick Saliba in the Invincibles side ahead of Kolo Toure.

“I think I’m going to go with Sol Campbell and Saliba,” he said. “Now, Toure was brilliant by the way. Their partnership was hard to play against by the way, I remember playing against them, trying to run in behind both of them, like two whippets. But I’d go Saliba.”
