Pundit explains Arsenal’s biggest problem under Arsene Wenger
Danny Murphy explains Arsenal's biggest problem under Arsene Wenger
Danny Murphy has claimed that Arsenal’s biggest problem is Premier League teams are too familiar with Arsene Wenger’s game plan.
The Gunners boss is already coming under pressure following a disappointing start to the new Premier League season.
The north London side suffered a 1-0 loss to Stoke City in their first Premier League game on the road last month.
Arsenal made the long trip to Anfield looking to reverse their fortunes but the Gunners produced one of their worst performances under Arsene Wenger.
The FA Cup winners lost 4-0 as Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Daniel Sturridge all got on the score sheet.
The Gunners were heavily criticised for showing a lack of fight and passion during the one-sided Premier League clash.
Former Liverpool midfielder Murphy claimed that Arsenal’s game plan is too transparent and the top teams know how to pick apart Wenger’s team.
“You know how Arsenal are going to play whether they played three at the back or four at the back,” Keown told BBC Sport.
“They commit men forward. They think they’re going to outscore you that way.”
Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League last season to miss out on a place in the Champions League.
The Gunners haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04 when Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira fired Arsenal to a famous unbeaten season.
