‘I would pay to watch Arsenal’: Spurs hero makes bold confession about Gunners
Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood has made a bold admission about the Gunners that will not go down too well with the fans of his old club.
Arsenal have made a perfect start to the new season after winning their matches against Newcastle United and Burnley in the Premier League.
The fact that the Gunners finished last season in terrible form meant that expectations were bound to be low, heading into the new campaign.
However, the additions of players like Dani Ceballos and Nicolas Pepe have seen the Emirates stadium crowd gain new belief about the team possibly competing for major honours once again.
Having seen off Newcastle and Burnley, Arsenal now have their biggest test so far coming up against Liverpool at Anfield this weekend.
But as things stand at the moment, Unai Emery’s side have impressed many pundits, including former Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood, who says he is willing to pay to watch the Gunners in action.
“I’m excited to watch Arsenal every single week, thank you very much. I would pay to watch Arsenal. They are excellent going forward.” Sherwood said – via the Tribuna
“Defensively, frailties. They look strong going forward, as we knew they would.
“They’ve added players to their squad going forward. [Nicolas] Pepe, [Dani] Ceballos is an excellent player.
“They’ve got excellent players, they all look like they’re really enjoying it.
“They’ve all got that mentality now of ’we’re going to play and we’re going to score more than the opposition’.
“Now that’s okay against Burnleys, it’s okay against the Aston Villas, it’s okay against the [Crystal] Palace’s of this world.
“Is it okay against Man City? Is it okay in a north London derby? We will see that very soon.
“They’re going to concede goals, we know that, they’ve still got their frailties.
“I thought David Luiz was very good today, I think he definitely has improved them.
“But they can still have them problems.
“They probably had them problems because of the philosophy of how the manager wants to play.
“He wants to play wide open, he doesn’t want to cover them up too much.
“[Granit] Xhaka was left out today, Ceballos comes into there and he’s more of a technician, wants to get his head turned on the swivel, looks forward, looks to pass, great range of passing.”
