Gary Neville has taken a fresh pop at Arsenal following Thursday night’s 3-0 defeat at home to Manchester City in which the Gunners were booed off the pitch.
Defeat meant that Arsenal have now suffered seven defeats since the start of 2018 – more than any other Premier League club – after going down to Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest, Swansea, Tottenham, Ostersund and Manchester City, twice.
Having laid into Arsene Wenger’s side following their Carabao Cup final display, Neville has now taken to Twitter to give a further assessment of the ongoing situation at the club, and once again it is the players he has taken aim at.
Responding to a publication in which Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan insisted that the players must unite during a difficult period for the club, the former Manchester United man produced condemning and blunt assessment:
“I wonder if Arsenal’s players ever have a row, tell each other how shit they have been or analyse themselves or each other and share the thoughts on how to improve?
“Are they watching the video of last night’s game now or is it let’s put that behind us? Genuinely don’t know!”

The Gunners have often failed to make any sort of on-field reaction to recent defeats on the field, thus leading to a widespread echoing of Neville’s sentiments.
There is a crisis ongoing at the Emirates – and if the players cannot find the character and desire that Neville has berated them for being short of, then unfortunately for Arsenal and its supporters it appears the situation will only somehow get worse.
