Thanks to a late strike by Kai Havertz, the Gunners defeated Brentford 1-0 on Saturday at the Gtech Community Stadium, with William Saliba and Gabriel at the center of their defense.

With just 10 goals allowed in 13 games this season, Mikel Arteta’s team boasts the finest defense in the Premier League, and Ferdinand has been greatly impressed by the men that play the position that he was so good at.

‘The two centre-backs, they’ll be the reason why I would put them ahead of Liverpool in the title race to challenge someone like Manchester City, because you can trust those two implicitly at the moment,’ Ferdinand said on TNT Sports after Arsenal’s win at Brentford.

Ferdinand also praised the Arsenal team’s tenacity, resolve, and fighting spirit, which they shown in their victory over the Bees. By no means was Arteta’s performance a brilliant one, but they persisted and in the 89th minute Havertz nodded in a superb cross from Bukayo Saka to seal three points.

‘These guys don’t mind rolling up their sleeves as well and doing the ugly stuff, which is a real testament to them as a partnership.’

Erik ten Hag is anxious to prevent Jadon Sancho from making a “empty gesture,” therefore Manchester United is apparently willing to accept a “significant loss” on him.

Sancho has a disruptive impact on the rest of United’s team, according to manager Ten Hag, who is determined to get rid of the winger.

This season, Sancho and Ten Hag had a nasty falling out, with the Dutchman publicly criticizing his player in the media for his lack of effort in practice. After spending £73 million on him in 2021, United is now willing to suffer a “significant loss” on the player in the January transfer window.
