A round up of news stories this morning related to Arsenal.
All areas of the team need attention according to the Frenchman, who watched the game live yesterday.
“I think they need to buy four players - they need that spine. They need a goalkeeper, they still need a centre back, they still need a holding midfielder and, I'm afraid, they need a top, top quality striker to win this league again,” he said.
Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown explained in the Daily Mail that he feels Danny Welbeck should have started the game against Chelsea.
Arsenal missed out on the chance to close the gap on the Blues at the top of the table after a rather flat 0-0 draw.
Keown claims that Welbeck’s pace could have been the key difference between the teams yesterday.
“If Danny Welbeck had played through the middle, his pace could have unsettled Chelsea. It’s much easier to be compact when there’s no threat in behind,” he said.
Arsene Wenger has been quoted by FourFourTwo suggesting that his team were too cautious against the Blues.
The Frenchman has suggested that Arsenal looked overly worried about being caught on the counter attack, which muted their normal attacking tendencies.
He’s suggested that it was important not to lose as the club looks to close out an automatic qualification place into the Champions League.
“I believe that we played with the handbrake on at times. We were conscious of being hit on the counter-attack and it was important not to lose,” he said.
