Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville both pick Arsenal quartet in their Premier League Team of the Season

Sky Sports pundits Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville have picked their Premier League team of the season and both agreed on four Arsenal players in their respective teams.

Neville selected Ben White, William Saliba, Gabriel Magalhaes, Martin Odegaard and Declan Rice in his team, while Carragher excluded White but included the other four stars in his team.

The Gunners have had the best defence in the Premier League this season, and the Sky Sports duo agreed that Saliba and Gabriel have been outstanding.

“If Saliba and Gabriel stay together for the next three or four years, we’re talking about them alongside (Rio) Ferdinand and (Nemanja) Vidic, (Ricardo) Carvalho and (John) Terry,” Carragher said on Monday Night Football.

“There’s a lot of talk about Saliba but Gabriel has been outstanding,” Neville added.

White has also been excellent at right-back for most of the campaign, weighing in with four goals and four assists in 36 Premier League appearances.

The 26-year-old could get the nod of his colleagues during their voting for the PFA Team of the Year, and not many people would be surprised if he pips other right-backs to a spot in the team.

Arsenal have kept 18 clean sheets in 37 league games this term and conceded the least goals (28).

While Saliba and Gabriel have often been praised for the team’s impeccable defensive solidity, White’s influence has been equally commendable.

Odegaard and Rice have made the Arsenal midfield tick. The Gunners skipper has been a consistent creator-in-chief, while Rice has arguably been the best holding midfielder.
