It was a mistake because it ended up in a goal but he had to go for it or Vardy scores. Ramsdale was in no-man's land and has to take some of the blame for causing Saliba to panic.That was a mistake for sure. There was enough time for him to adjust body position to head the ball out of harm's way. Just imagine if it was Mustafi making the same mistake.
He did bounce back from the mistake. The crowd at the Emirates supporting him sure helped.
He is still the same player who has high potential. I don't see this mistake changing that.
That's something that will change with Saliba here. I don't think he panics, I believe he tried to win the ball for us by heading it to Ramsdale who was out of position.Me, I'd have hoofed it for a corner.
“This is football,” said Xhaka. “People only see the own goal but maybe, hopefully, they’ll see what a game he had. This guy is 21. I think in his first game in the Premier League for Arsenal he was unbelievable.

“You can see how…he looks like he is 30. He has discipline and big character. He is not so loud, but he is a proper leader in my eyes.
“You can see he is amazing. He has a lot of quality and yeah, we forget the own goal because for 90 minutes he had a great, great game.”
We won’t get a good fee with only 1 year remaining next summer.Well I'm sure if we can keep playing him, make him feel included and get into CL he'll stay.
I hope.......if he doesn't sign then at the least I hope we get a good fee for him in the summer.

He has to signed or we’re ****ed.
