Arsenal are presently in “crisis” as indicated by former Arsenal defender Martin Keown, who addressed Arsene Wenger’s decision-making following Sunday’s humiliating 4-0 loss to Liverpool.
Goals from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Daniel Sturridge lowered visiting Arsenal in Premier League action at Anfield.
Club-record marking Alexandre Lacazette, centre- back Shkodran Mustafi and Sead Kolasinac were named among the substitutes as Arsenal crashed with consecutive annihilations and Keown compared the circumstance with that of London rivals West Ham, where Slaven Bilic is under pressure following three successive misfortunes to start of the season.
“Arsenal look so naïve,” Keown told BBC. “Their midfield, [Granit] Xhaka is not mobile enough, [Aaron] Ramsey keeps vacating the field.
“Wenger’s belief is to go and attack. His glass is always half-full. He wants to create. He is turning up at the training ground with the team to be creative.
“They had no shots on goal against Liverpool. It’s absolutely unthinkable. They’ve conceded eight goals. We’re talking about [West Ham manager] Slaven Bilic losing his job. He’s conceded 10. Arsenal are next to them. This is a crisis.
“There is £130million worth of players sitting on the bench. Lacazette, we are told he is a new hope. Why is he on the bench?
“Some of the rational about the decisions today, I’m scratching my head. Gabriel is an outstanding player, probably the best pound-for-pound defender. He’s been allowed to leave for £9m. Mustafi sitting on the bench. I’m not sure now about the decisions being made.”
