Arsenal Are Lazy — Gary Neville
Category : News
GARY NEVILLE has branded Arsenal lazy after they let Manchester City come from behind to win at the Etihad.
The Manchester United legend and Sky Sports pundit has not held back when it comes to evaluating Arsenal’s performance against Manchester City, branding Arsene Wenger’s side ‘lazy’ and lacking bravery.
Despite taking an early lead in their recent clash with City at the Etihad, Arsenal were soon overwhelmed by the home side.
A failure to deal with the pressing of Pep Guardiola’s men saw the Gunners surrender their advantage and fall to a 2-1 defeat.
‘Arsenal’s players look absolutely knackered, shot to pieces,’ he said.
“It (the defending leading to City’s second goal) was walking pace. You never walk on a football pitch,” he said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.
“These players do normally put a shift in, they might not be the mentally toughest players in the world, but there is something fundamentally wrong.”
Arsenal are now fourth, nine points behind leaders Chelsea having been top of the league briefly last weekend after beating Stoke.
