Jamie Redknapp: No Arsenal star would make Chelsea FC team
The Liverpool FC legend believes none of the Arsenal players would command a spot in the Chelsea FC side
Jamie Redknapp has claimed that none of the Arsenal players would command a spot in the Chelsea FC team.
The Gunners made the short trip to Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening in search of a first Premier League win under Unai Emery.
Arsenal suffered a 2-0 loss to defending Premier League champions Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium in their season opener.
The Gunners had the chance to make amends against Chelsea FC at the weekend given the Blues are rebuilding under Maurizio Sarri.
However, Chelsea FC surged into a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Spanish duo Alvaro Morata and Pedro Rodriguez.
Arsenal showed character to respond after Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi levelled the Premier League clash before half-time.
Eden Hazard came off the bench in the second half and the Belgian star teed up Marcos Alonso to secure a 3-2 win over Arsenal.
Former Liverpool FC captain Redknapp delivered a blunt verdict on Arsenal’s squad.
“Arsenal may have shown fight to battle back against Chelsea but their 3-2 loss only papers over the cracks,” Redknapp told the Daily Mail.
“Looking at the Arsenal team, not one of their players would get in Maurizio Sarri’s best XI. At the heart of defence, Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis don’t look a partnership. ”
Arsenal haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04 when Arsene Wenger’s side finished the campaign unbeaten.
The Gunners signed five players in the summer transfer window after Emery replaced Wenger at the end of the 2017-18 season.
Arsenal have scored five goals in their opening two games.
