Plenty of Arsenal fans would’ve been excited to see William Saliba in action for Nice tonight, but it’s not been a great start for the youngster.
It’s not really been his fault and the whole team appears to be all over the place, while it’s hard to tell if this back-pass was intended for him or the keeper – but it was dreadful either way:

If you want to be incredibly critical you could suggest that he has to be more switched on to cover this, but you really can’t blame him for not anticipating a horrific piece of play from a teammate.
It looks like he has a big job on his hands to help turn this defence around, so he’ll be hoping the only way is up from here.
