Lee Dixon has accused the Arsenal squad of not caring enough.

The Gunners lost 3-1 to Premier League leaders Manchester City in their top-six clash at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

Manchester City eased into a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero before Gabriel Jesus restored their two-goal cushion after Alexandre Lacazette’s consolation goal.

Arsenal have only managed to win one of their last six Premier League games on the road to raise serious questions about the north London side’s ability to perform in tough away games.

The north London outfit have already lost to Stoke City, Arsenal, Watford and Manchester City on the road, while the Gunners’ only win came in a 5-2 victory at rudderless Everton.

Arsenal are in sixth place in the Premier League table following a disappointing start to the season despite spending a club-record fee on Lacazette in the summer transfer window.

Former Gunners defender Dixon questioned the Arsenal squad’s commitment following an unconvincing start to the campaign.

“When I look at this Arsenal team now, they don’t look like they care enough,” Dixon told BBC Radio 5 Live. “It’s a lack of discipline.”

Arsenal missed out on a place in the Champions League last season after ending up in fifth place behind Liverpool.

The Gunners haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04.
