Former Arsenal star blames these two for Arsenal’s terrible start to the season

ESPN pundit and former Arsenal star Paul Mariner has picked out the people who should be held responsible for Arsenal’s recent struggles.

The Gunners are currently 16th in the Premier League following a worrying start to the season which has seen them lose two of their opening three games.

After being thrashed 4-0 by Liverpool, many expected Arsene Wenger to move quickly to strengthen his squad before the transfer window closed.

However, the past week only saw more players exit the club, leaving many with the impression that Arsenal are in quite a crisis only a few games into the new campaign.

And according to ex-Gunner Mariner, Wenger and chief executive Ivan Gazidis need to be questioned.

“I was getting excited when Wenger said that Sanchez was staying. Ozil, Sanchez and Lacazette – that’s a dynamite front three. Lacazette is a great finisher. It’s going to be fantastic,” he said

“As the transfer window is coming to a close, all of a sudden 65 millin is put on the table and we’re going to get Lemar. But they couldn’t that over the line, so therefore Sanchez is going now, no he’s not going he’s staying. It’s just an absolute shambles.

“Gazidis and Wenger and whoever the powers are above the head coach, they have a lot to answer for because this season is in tatters.”
