Gary Neville has criticised Arsenal’s players for showing a lack of respect for each other during Saturday’s loss at Stoke City.

Arsene Wenger’s men slumped to a 3-2 defeat by the Potters at the Britannia Stadium, with a number of the Gunners’ key players coming in for criticism for their disappointing displays.

And former Manchester United defender Neville was frustrated to see a lack of support amongst the north London club’s players during the game.

“It makes my blood boil when you see players suffering on a football pitch or you see [young players] struggling,” Neville said.

“It’s your duty to sacrifice your own game and cover him. It’s your duty. Forget your own game, forget scoring goals, particularly the full-backs, I think they’re getting exposed.

“They have no respect for each other at times. Abandoning ships is a good point, but abandoning each other is unforgivable. You can’t abandon each other on a football pitch.”
