A crucial part

There is no doubt that Ben White is a crucial part of Mikel Arteta's ever-evolving Arsenal team. His overlapping runs, crosses, and frequent set-piece shenanigans all contribute to the Gunners' attack in a positive way, while his defensive actions are also key to the side.

When discussing the ideal Arsenal back four, many replace Ben White at right back with either Jurrien Timber or Takehiro Tomiyasu. These are both very talented players, but White must continue to be the starting right-back.

It's also clear that White's heart is at Arsenal. Despite not being a fan of watching football, he seems to be at home at the club and very happy to be there. When asked by Sky Sports if he sees his future at Arsenal, White said: "Yeah definitely, I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I'm very settled and all my family are here. It's an amazing place to live and obviously playing for Arsenal tops it off."

Having became one of the most underrated and arguably one of the best full backs in the Premier League, Ben White is a very crucial part of this Arsenal side and he will continue to be for years to come.
