Arsenal have been scoring lots of goals this term but they seem to be concede so much too and their inability to keep clean sheets has got Arsenal legend Charlie Nicolas talking.
Charlie Nicolas has heavily criticised Laurent Koscielny for Arsenal’s below par defending and claims the French defensive stalwart is not world class.
Everything is half-hearted about Arsenal, making daft decisions,’ the Scot said on Sky Sports of the game.
He added: ‘They’re not a team that hurts enough to get clean sheets and win the game the hard way sometimes. They just don’t do it, they don’t want to do it.’
‘And I’m sorry, a lot of people keep saying about Koscielny. Koscielny has got a lot of French caps but he’s as much to blame as everybody else.
‘He’s not world class often enough for Arsenal.’
The north Londoners slip up at the Vitality stadium has left them off the pace in the Premier League – and outside the top four.
Arsenal are now in fifth, one point behind fourth placed Manchester City and eight behind leaders Chelsea.
Luckily for Arsene Wenger and co., rivals Liverpool and Chelsea also dropped points during the last set of matches.
