Football fans question whether Ben White uses fake tan as he ‘looks so orange’

Premier League fans have, once again, been wondering if Arsenal defender Ben White uses fake tan.

The Gunners’ right back featured in the first half of Mikel Arteta’s side’s 3-2 victory over Manchester United, but was hauled off at half-time after struggling against Marcus Rashford. However, this was a rare moment of frustration for the former Brighton and Hove Albion defender, who has otherwise enjoyed an exemplary campaign on the right side of the North Londoners’ defence.

However, while very few have questioned White’s performances this season, many are still questioning his skin complexion.

“Ben White should be embarrassed. How much fake tan is he wearing,” one fan laughed on social media. “Does Ben White have a fake spray tan? Why does he look so orange,” another Arsenal fan wrote on social media.

“Ben White’s Essex fake tan is hilarious,” said one other fan who evidently believes they have seen that shade of orange on The Only Way is Essex, before another supporter put all joking aside to ask, “does Ben White fake tan? Genuine question.”

Meanwhile, one other rival fan sarcastically asked if White has found a part of London with regular Mediterranean weather. “I want to know what part of London Ben White is living in to get that tan,” the fan tweeted.

Fake tan or not, it did not stop the outstanding Rashford from giving White the round around on the right side of Arsenal’s backline. The £54million defender made way for Takehiro Tomiyasu at half time, who also found it difficult getting to grips with Rashford.

However, with another vital three points in the bag, Arteta was in no mood to criticise his players. “I wouldn’t like to talk individually about players,” Arteta said in his post match press conference after the game.

“But what I would like to say is that the courage and the personality that the players showed today, the initiative to make things happen, when the game is at a stage where [we say] “what is going to happen”, they’re not looking at each other saying ‘you’re going to do it’. [They’re saying] ‘I’m taking responsibility, I’m doing it myself “, and I absolutely loved that today.”
