Arsenal news: Jamie Redknapp’s damning criticism proves Gunners have made huge mistake | Football | Sport

Arsenal slipped down to 10th place in the Premier League with a 1-0 defeat at home to Manchester City on Sunday. The Gunners were underwhelming throughout the match, and lacked any kind of spark in the final third to cause the leaders any worries at the back. Jamie Redknapp’s slamming of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang shows that Arsenal may have made a huge error in handing their club captain a long-term deal. Mikel Arteta’s side failed to produce any attacking moments of promise in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City Gunners striker…

After the match, Arteta said his team had worked on similar scenarios to Sterling’s goal. And therefore it was the nature of the goal…

“But I think down that left-hand side with Saka and Tierney always looks dangerous.” Aubameyang scored a hat-trick in his last league appearance for the Gunners in an otherwise difficult season for the Gabon international. Redkapp went further with his criticism of the forward, claiming he was “bullied” by the City defence at the Emirates. The pundit added: “Look at Aubameyang; Aubameyang is past his best. He’s going to have moments, he’s going to get hat-tricks. “When I watch him sometimes, it’s like he’s lost his super power. Source link

Arsenal news: Alex Scott unconvinced by “bang average” Gunners star in Man City defeat | Football | Sport

Alex Scott has questioned Mikel Arteta’s decision to play Martin Odegaard over Emile Smith Rowe in Arsenal’s 1-0 loss to Manchester City. The former Gunners star was unconvinced by the Norwegian’s “bang average” performance after being handed another chance to shine. Arsenal failed to create any real openings of note as they struggled to breakdown City’s impressive backline. Arteta’s side were excellent last time out at home to Leeds as they blew Marcelo Bielsa’s men away. But Arsenal’s blunt attack against City was a far cry from the quality on…

“The fact that we have the Europa League gave the opportunity to almost everyone in the squad to be fit and available and compete for their place,” said Arteta. “[Pepe] has had some really good matches and scored some important goals as well and I think that has helped him for the Premier League form and the recent form that he’s shown. “I’ve seen a lot of things, in his mentality, the way he approaches every training session, in his understanding of the game as well. “It’s true that he…

Manchester United transfer plans suggest elephant in room will be ignored by Solskjaer | Football | Sport

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is quite clear that he wants a centre-back, but who will remain at the heart of the Manchester United defence remains a bigger problem. Last summer, the Norwegian requested the signing of a central defender to Ed Woodward but his wish was overlooked by the executive vice-chairman and the decision has proved costly at times this season. United are still yet to settle on a first-choice pairing, as Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly continue to fight for the right to partner Maguire at the back. Interestingly, Lindelof…

He is yet to score more than 14 Premier League goals in a single campaign, and is unlikely to do so this term having netted just eight so far. Speaking last month, Arteta insisted talks with Lacazette will not take place until the end of this season. “We will talk in the summer and make a decision then,” said Arteta. “We have not talked [now] about anything related to his contract.
