On Saliba, Arteta said: "Wili (Saliba) was phenomenal - his relationship with Gabriel, his understanding with the back four, for him to play his first Premier League game away from home against Palace, really credit to the boy because he stood with a big presence and a lot of composure."
Arteta also said of Gabriel Jesus and Oleks Zinchenko: "Both of them (Jesus and Zinchenko), the way we started shows how hungry they are, the risks they take, the intiative they give in the game. They are really big additions for us.
"That is something he (Zinchenko) gives, that ability and versatility - and it is something we don't have.
"The game he (Jesus) played right from the start is just a nightmare for defenders. He is electric, he never stops, he is always on your shoulder, he is ready to go with and without the ball and I am really pleased with his performance."
