Jamie Carragher believes that Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan need to start pulling their weight at Arsenal this season.

It has been a slow start to the season for the Gunners, with Arsenal having slumped to back to back defeats by Manchester City and Chelsea FC in their opening two games of the new campaign under new manager Unai Emery.

Ozil and Mkhitaryan have featured in both games but were unable to help prevent the north London side from slipping to back to back defeats in their first two Premier League matches of the new campaign.

Both Ozil and Mkhitaryan have been criticised for their failure to produce consistent performances for the Gunners in recent months.

And former Liverpool FC star Carragher seems to feel that both of the attackers need to start pulling their weight in the Arsenal team.

Carragher wrote on Twitter: “If him [Mkhitaryan] and Ozil start pressing & running back they’ll have a chance!”

Arsenal will look to pick up their first Premier League points of the season on Saturday when they host West Ham United at The Emirates.

The north London side have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph under Arsene Wenger back in 2003-04.

The Gunners finished in sixth place in the table and without a trophy last term.
