Martin Keown is furious at the performances of Arsene Wenger’s men and he believes the Gunners have the quality to perform better than they are right now, via Sport Review.
The Gunners have been criticized for their recent performances after blowing the chance of closing in on League Leaders Leicester City. Wenger has been accused of possessing a team without leaders but Keown believes Arsenal’s performance this term is not due to lack of leaders in the team.
“I’m not going to join in the debate about leaders because everybody accuses Arsenal of lacking leadership and personality,” Keown said.
“I’m not in the dressing room so I don’t know who the characters are in the group. Charlie Adam says that Arsenal are a quiet team and there’s no question the confidence is ebbing away.
“Even Arsene Wenger looks like he’s doubting his team as the reality of these results is sinking in.”
Keown added: “But earlier in the season Arsenal were a clinical team. They may not be that vocal on the pitch but they certainly did their talking with the ball.
“I’m not saying they’re just a bunch of nice boys but when they quietly went about their business, it was usually enough. As soon as results change, the criticisms creep in.
“But things can change and if it needs somebody in the group to come forward and put themselves on the map, then so be it.”
We will be hoping the team can get back their confidence as soon as possible in order to get back to winning ways.
