The pair of Arsenal legends were not pleased with the performance of their team yesterday.

Arsenal are on the brink of elimination from the Champions League after being humbled by AS Monaco at The Emirates.

Inspired by being classed as the best possible draw for Arsenal, the French visitors to north London fired into The Gunners from start to finish and deserved their 3-1 win that leaves Arsene Wenger on the ropes.

The Gunners will back themselves to do the business in Monaco, but they will need to score three goals at least to beat a side who boast the best defensive record in the Champions League this season. Their chances appear slim.

It was a result, and performance, that did not go down well with several former Arsenal players.

One such man was Ian Wright. A seven-year veteran at the club, he was Arsenal's top scorer before Thierry Henry came along.

He came out with this series of Tweets describing the game in which he suggested Arsenal were complacent because it was only Monaco, and not one of the big teams:



He was not alone. Former team-mate Lee Dixon, who was at Arsenal for 14 years, had an astonishing claim on Twitter about the performance. He suggested it was one of the worst Arsenal showings he had ever seen:


Arsenal need to turn things around quickly because as the fans, legends and pundits begin to mount up in their criticism, Wenger's position begins to grow increasingly more uncertain.
