Alan Shearer wowed by £93k-a-week Arsenal player who just keeps delivering

Arsenal defender Ben White has made it into Alan Shearer’s latest Premier League Team of the Week.

The Gunners powerhouse continues to deliver for Mikel Arteta’s side, having embarked on a great run of form.

White is one of the main beneficiaries of Arsenal’s winter trip to Dubai. He was struggling prior to that, but is now firing on all cylinders.

The 26-year-old is also thriving in the inverted full-back role and seems to be enjoying it. His upturn in form has coincided with Arsenal’s incredible league run.

On Monday night, White was one of many Arsenal players who impressed in the 6-0 rout of Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

The £93,000-a-week ace (Salarysport) had the freedom to push in-field like a midfielder, which contributed to him getting his goal, the cherry on top just before the hour.

Shearer liked what he saw from White, singing his praises alongside those of Martin Odegaard and Mikel Arteta.

“Another goal and another top performance from the defender,” he said on the Premier League website.

Everything seems to be clicking for the Gunners at just the right time. It’ll be exciting to see how they continue to fare in the title race.

And then you have the Champions League last-16 second leg against Porto, with Arsenal trailing 1-0 in the tie. The rampant Gunners will certainly fancy their chances.
