Thierry Henry slams this Arsenal star for “school boy error” against Bournemouth
Thierry Henry has expressed his frustration with how Arsenal defended during Tuesday’s 3-3 draw at Bournemouth.
Arsene Wenger’s men managed to score three goals in the final 20 minutes of the game to rescue a point from their trip to the Vitality stadium.
However, the fact that Arsenal were already 3-0 down to Eddie Howe’s side after 58 minutes did not sit too well with fans of the away side.
And ex-Gunner Thierry Henry was quick to point out defensive mistakes from right-back Hector Bellerin after the match.
“Bellerin has to help his centre-back [in the first goal] because a Bournemouth player is making a run behind him.” he said in his post-match analysis on Sky Sports
“Ramsey has a look and sees and knows Daniels is there and has to make an effort to help the right back, but Hector Bellerin has to do way better than this. The way he defended was not good enough.”
The former Arsenal captain also questioned the efforts of Bellerin to stop Ryan Fraser from scoring Bournemouth’s third goal even though he appeared to have been fouled.
“I heard that Bellerin was quick but I think he relied too much on his pace there. You have to protect the ball, put your body in. That is a school boy error.” Henry added
“It was then a great finish from Fraser and to be fair he deserved that.”
