Lee Dixon: This is what Arsenal are lacking

The former Arsenal defender says Arsene Wenger's side are lacking killer instinct

Lee Dixon says Arsenal lack a killer instinct after Wednesday night’s 2-2 draw with Paris Saint-Germain at The Emirates.

The Gunners had the chance to secure top spot in Group A if Arsene Wenger’s side could beat the Ligue 1 holders in north London.

However, Uruguay international Edinson Cavani broke the deadlock with a close-range finish in the first half.

Arsenal managed to haul themselves level thanks to Olivier Giroud’s penalty on the stroke of half-time after Alexis Sanchez was awarded a fortuitous spot-kick.

The Gunners took a slender lead in the second half after Marco Verratti turned the ball into his own net to give Arsenal an undeserved lead.

However, Wenger’s side couldn’t capitalise on their good fortune as Lucas Moura levelled with 17 minutes remaining at The Emirates.

PSG are in pole position to finish top of Group A ahead of their home clash against Bulgarian minnows Ludogorets next time out.

Former Arsenal defender Dixon was critical of Wenger’s side for failing to hold onto their slender advantage.

“There is [a] real killer instinct where you get into a game and now you’ve got something, to keep hold of it,” Dixon told ITV Sport after Arsenal squandered the lead against PSG.
