“They have not got it right” – Gary Neville highlights the cause of Arsenal Problem after Everton defeat



Gary Neville on Arsenal

Manchester United legend Gary Neville pinpoints Mikel Arteta’s problems and believs the Arsenal’s young players are not the problem but the Gunner’s squad lacking the leaders to guild them on the pitch.

The Gunner’s suffered a 2-1 defeat to Everton on Monday night and now sit in the seventh spot on the League table, 12 points behind league leaders Manchester City.

Martin Odegaard opening the scoring line at Goodison Park before Richarlison cancel the Gunners lead and a late goal from Demarai Gray silence the Gunners hope of taking a point from the match.

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was left on the bench and he was only introduced with five minutes to play.

Arsenal’s season has been build around yong players, the likes of Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka helping the team in every difficult moment while the senior players were coming in fot criticism.

Former Manchester United player Gary Neville believes the Gunners relying in inexperienced players is what’s responsible for their poor form.

Arsenal players

‘He is just teetering, isn’t he?’ Neville said of Arteta on Monday Night Football after the defeat to Everton.

‘He’s doing a good job and then he loses a few and he is under pressure. He is flip-flopping between those two things and there is no in-between.

‘I think when we talk about this being a young team in terms of the average age, when you go to places like Old Trafford and Goodison Park in a night game one or two of the young players won’t have experienced it too many times.

‘I remember my first game going to Anfield and it was tough, going to Arsenal at Highbury. You need experience to get you through those difficult moments when the crowd go up and a few decisions go against you and you can feel something happening.

‘You need comfort in there. You need that spine. Arsenal’s senior players are not really massive characters. They are not really leaders. They don’t get those young players through those difficult moments in the game so the other players just go under a little.

‘That is natural. I think there is a lot of talent there. The young players are not the problem.

‘The problem in Arsenal’s team is that they have not got the direction or the standards around them to get them through these turbulent moments that occur at Old Trafford or Goodison and you just feel you need that arm around you. They have not got it.’

Mikel Arteta’s side will be looking to bounce back in their next league game against Southampton this Saturday.
