The versatile Frenchman mainly excelled as a right-back during his Gunners career, and consistently played at a high level.

Sagna ended up making 284 appearances for Arsenal and was, perhaps, their most undervalued player during his time at the Emirates Stadium. He also deserved more than a solitary FA Cup.

And, while many could argue Hector Bellerin’s merits as well, we believe Sagna deserves the nod in this XI.
