Former Newcastle United striker Micky Quinn told talkSPORT why he feels criticism of Arsenal is unjustified at the moment.
Arsenal have endured an indifferent start to the season, suffering a defeat against West Ham at home on the opening day of the season and a disappointing display at home against Liverpool, with a victory against Crystal Palace sandwiched in between.
“We’re only three games into this particular league – They do look inept in front of goal and at this moment they’re just struggling for a bit of form – They need time to settle down,” he told talkSPORT.
Too early to judge
Quinn has a point because Arsenal haven’t played enough games for an accurate judgement to be made over the way they are playing this season and what they are capable of.
There are arguably one or two deficiencies in the squad, but there is a little bit of time left in the transfer window if Wenger feels he needs to bring in some extra bodies.
When Arsenal are allowed to utilise their pace and control a game, they are the best in the league to watch and they will play some very attractive football.
However, they can’t afford to concede much more ground on their main rivals in the title race, which only gives them uphill challenges to combat.
