The Arsenal defender sensationally confused a former Gunner with Everton coach Sean Dyche in a test-your-knowledge quiz.

Arsenal defensive stalwart William Saliba hilariously confused a former Swiss Gunner Philippe Senderos with Everton boss Sean Dyche.

The 11-cap France international was asked to identify former Arsenal players from old snaps of their time playing for the club.

Saliba, 22, was successfully able to pick out Yaya Sanogo, Andrey Arshavin, Alex Song, and Gervinho.

But it was his reaction to a snap of Philippe Senderos that had fans in stitches.

The former Marseille loanee was shown an image of Senderos wearing Arsenal's distinctive burgundy 2005-06 home shirt.

Looking curious, the France international guessed: "The coach of Everton?"

When it was pointed out that it was not Dyche, Saliba burst out laughing.

Saliba has emerged as one of the key stars at the Emirates Stadium over the last two seasons, having at last been given a chance in north London after spending three loans in Ligue 1

The center-half has forged a brilliant partnership with Brazil's Gabriel Magalhaes at the heart of Mikel Arteta's back four, almost leading the Gunners to a first Premier League title in 19 years.

Now retired, Senderos began his career at Servette, before moving to England as a teenager with Arsenal. 

He made 116 appearances over seven seasons with the north London club, and won the FA Cup in 2005. Following loans to Milan and Everton, he then moved to Fulham on a free transfer in 2010, where he played for four seasons. Senderos then had brief spells at clubs in Spain, England, Scotland, Switzerland, and the United States.

A full Swiss international from 2005 to 2016, Senderos won 57 caps and scored five goals. He was included in the Swiss squads for three FIFA World Cups and at UEFA Euro 2008.
