William Saliba is the first Arsenal player to play every minute of a Premier League season since Lee Dixon in 1989/90. He and Wolves Max kilman are the only players to achieve that feat this season.

First Arsenal player to play every minute of Premier League season

The Frenchman has been a fixture for the Arsenal side since his 3 year loan exile. It constitutes a period Arteta decided he wasn’t ready for Premier League football.

Since he came into the side last season, he has been near flawless and relatively ever present for the gunners. Many believe his absence in last season’s run in cost Arsenal the opportunity to win the league last year.
