Keown and Wright criticise Arsenal stars for taking selfies

Arsenal Emirates

The Gunners were 2-0 winners over Everton on Saturday, and followed that with the usual celebratory pictures.

Arsenal legends Martin Keown and Ian Wright have criticised the current crop of stars for taking selfies following a win, in comments to BT Sport.

The Gunners stars have become well known for posting selfies on social media following games over recent years.

Saturday afternoon was no different, with several players all sharing their delight following the 2-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park.

But while it may be great for the fans, Keown and Wright are not fans of the growing trend, questioning where the player’s heads are.

“You see them disappointed, then they’ll beat Leicester and take selfies. You think to yourself, where’s your head right now? What are you thinking?” Wright told BT Sport.

“I’ll have my photograph taken all day long when we’ve won a trophy, but when we’re halfway through a season, I haven’t got time for that,” added Keown.

Despite Keown and Wright’s criticism, the Gunners will now be hoping there can be more celebratory selfies between now and the end of the season.

They will need to go on an amazing run of form in the games remaining if they are to stand any hope of being title winners by the end of the season.

The gap between themselves and top two Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur is certainly a big one with those two having impressed this season.

Indeed, at present an Arsenal’s chances look slim at best, with the Foxes looking like they will run away with the title this season.
