Paul Merson's Arsenal claim actually makes a lot of sense

[Team News] Arsenal v West Ham – Three Gunners Players Ruled Out Until November

One Arsenal fan tweeted: "Just a pity he can't do it consistently in front of goal." while another asked the club's official Twitter account: "Can we focus on scoring actual in game goals".

"It is not about how much I criticised the fans - it is how much the team needs the fans", Pellegrini said.

West Ham and Arsenal have made slow starts to the new campaign, losing both their matches. Even the most demanding supporter can't have expected more from their opening two games of the season.

The sight of the former PSG and Sevilla coach in the dugout was always going to be a unusual one after 22 years of Arsene Wenger.

"For that, Aubameyang is a player who, in his career, has scored a lot and he is going to do that here also".


"He hasn't got the players to have a 20-yard gap between defence and attack, working hard".

The former Liverpool defender's comments came on the back of an interview that Henrikh Mkhitaryan gave to Sky Sports, which Neville posed to Carragher to further emphasise his own point on the situation at Arsenal.

According to Merson, Ozil and Mkhitaryan lack the workforce and aggression to put pressure the way the Spaniard wants.

However, life goes on without Wenger, the midfielder insists.

Emery's methods will take time to work.


"It is Arsenal's defensive vulnerability against their rivals at the top of the league that push them down into the Europa League places, but you'd expect them to get the better of everyone else".

Merson isn't wrong. Mkhitaryan proved at Borussia Dortmund under Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel that he can play as part of a team that presses the opposition high, but there is little to suggest that Ozil can do likewise.

"I don't know if the current crop have gone past being able to learn that way of playing".

Arsenal are preparing for their third Premier League match of the season on Saturday as West Ham United visit the Emirates.

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has disclosed details regarding the club's fastest player statistics.
