Jamie Carragher has accused Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez of being “nowhere near good enough” for Arsenal.

The duo have never been far away from the headlines this season, with the pair’s situation a relentless source of speculation due to the fact that both of their contracts at Arsenal expire in the summer of 2018.

Arsenal were dealt another severe blow to their top-four hopes on Monday night when they slumped to a 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Both Ozil and Sanchez played the full 90 minutes but neither were able to inspire their side towards a positive result against the Eagles.

And Liverpool legend Carragher has not been at all impressed by what he has seen from the Gunners duo in recent weeks.

Speaking after the game on Monday Night Football, Carragher said: “They have been bought to take Arsenal to titles and to the Champions League, but they have been nowhere near good enough for Arsenal.”
