Arsenal’s 4-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield has left fans fuming.
Wenger’s decision to play key players in unorthodox positions has left several pundits wondering as to why the highly experienced French manager is so persistent on a tactic that has nearly cost him 3 defeats in the opening 3 games of the Premier League.
Arsenal’s activity in the transfer market has further let down their supporters, having offloaded several players and signed just the two players who didn’t even feature in the starting 11 at the Merseyside.
Extremely poor defensive performances and yet letting Gabriel Paulista leave for Spain alongside rumors of Inter Milan closing in on a deal for Mustafi has left many wondering as to what really is going on at the North London club.
Lucas Perez, Keiran Gibbs, and Mathieu Debuchy are expected to be included in the outgoing transfer list that already features Chris Willock, Dan Crowley, Stefan O’Connor, Yaya Sanogo, Kaylen Hinds, Glen Kamara, Wojciech Szczesny, Gabriel Paulista and Jon-Miquel Toral.
Furthermore, Arsenal are set to lose 6 first team players for free next year. Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Oxlade Chamberlain, Keiran Gibbs, Santi Carzola and Joel Campbell have all entered the final year of their contracts. Despite Arsenal’s best efforts, no player has committed his future to the club at least not yet and each has continued to be linked with a move away from the Gunners throughout the summer.
As Thierry Henry mentioned, Arsenal have lost their ambition, their hunger for success, everything is too calm and comfortable at the club. They have no fight in them.
With under a 100 hours left for the transfer window to close and the uncertainty revolving around several key players, Arsene Wenger and company have it all to do in what could be a season defining 3 days.
