William Saliba takes jibe at Tottenham stadium atmosphere after NLD victory

When William Saliba was asked about the hostile atmosphere that he and his Arsenal teammates had to contend with at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, he insisted that he has experienced a “much better” atmosphere at the Stade Velodrome. This was in response to a question about the match between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

After picking up their first win at Tottenham’s home ground since 2014, Arsenal increased their lead atop the Premier League table to eight points. This victory allowed Arsenal to extend their lead even further.

The Gunners were in complete control of the action throughout the first half and raced out to a deserved 2-0 lead. Despite the fact that the home team gave a respectable account of themselves in the second period, Aaron Ramsdale maintained his composure and made sure that his team emerged victorious.

Although the home crowd were somewhat quieted by Mikel Arteta’s players as the game progressed, the atmosphere at the ground at the beginning of the game was as intense as one would expect for the North London derby.

Saliba, who spent the previous season on loan at Marseille, insisted that the atmosphere on Sunday cannot be compared to what he experienced in France. Saliba spent the previous season at Marseille.

After Arsenal’s 2-0 win, the center-back was asked to compare the two teams and responded, “No, Marseille is better.” This quote was obtained from The Daily Mail. I can assure you that it is significantly improved! However, today also featured a lively environment, and I made sure to adequately prepare for the contest.

When they were in full voice during the North London derby toward the end of the previous season, Spurs fans demonstrated just how intimidating the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium can be when they are there in force.

On the other hand, due to the nature of the goals that the home team gave up in the first half, the atmosphere was possibly not as intense as it had been on Sunday. These goals seemed to suck all the enthusiasm that had been built up.
