‘Get rid of them’ – Jamie Carragher tells Mikel Arteta to sell three Arsenal players

Published

on

Jamie Carragher believes Arsenal should put their faith in Mikel Arteta and sell a number of underperforming players.

The Gunners have endured a mixed season under Arteta but Carragher believes the manager deserves more time and needs to be allowed to trim his squad.

Arsenal suffered a demoralising 3-0 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday to stay ninth in the Premier League, nine points off the top-four and 32 points behind runaway leaders Manchester City.

Carragher says it will be a ‘painful’ process for Arsenal as they bid to create a squad capable of challenging for titles again and named Alexandre Lacazette, Nicolas Pepe and Willian as three players who should be moved on.

‘[Martin] Odegaard has come in and been a revelation, he’s someone you need to make a permanent signing if possible because he’s been fantastic.

‘Has [Alexandre] Lacazette ever really been the answer? No. Willian has been a disaster of a signing.

‘Nicolas Pepe, it’s not his age or his price tag, really, he’s just not good enough and never will be good enough, so Arsenal need to cut their losses there.’

Carragher also questioned the work ethic of Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has largely struggled this season after signing a new long-term contract at the Emirates last summer.

The former Liverpool and England defender added: ‘With Aubameyang, he’s the superstar, but I think his performances this season have been lazy, at times.

‘I don’t care how many goals he gets because if he doesn’t score a goal, he doesn’t bring anything to the team, and that’s a big problem.

‘They need more from him. It was one of the worst performances I’ve seen this season from Aubameyang against West Ham.

‘I think there will be a big worry at Arsenal that they might have another Mesut Ozil situation.’

Arsenal were completely outplayed by Liverpool at the weekend and Arteta admitted he was ‘shocked’ by his team’s poor performance.

‘Today was a big shock in the system,’ he said. ‘At the moment I’m in shock because I didn’t expect that.

‘For sure we cannot hit that level again. To represent this football club and people who love this club, that was not acceptable. You have to stand up and take the challenge.’

Just In: New pictures of Arsenal’s 2021/22 away kit leaked

Published

The first pictures of Arsenal’s first team squad sporting next season’s away kit have been leaked.

After this season’s, bloodshot eyes shirt, the club are returning to a more traditional yellow and blue combination for 2021/22.

The shade of yellow – ‘pearl citrine’ in adidas parlance – may look a little like custard but the use of the stripped-back cannon badge is a nice touch.

We expect to see similar shots of the home and third kits in due course. The latter is predicted to be blue with a lightning motif inspired by the kits of the mid-nineties.
