Arsenal’s defence has been crap this season, according to Charlie Nicholas, and new manager, Mikel Arteta actually inherited a mess at Emirates Stadium.
Charlie believes things have actually gone worse since Arteta was signed.
According to him, the Spanish manager has actually done well to bring appetite and energy to the team despite the fact that he took over a poor squad.
He added that drawing 12 games is a scandal and their defence has not helped them in any way this season.
His words, “Arsenal fans do appreciate what Mikel Arteta is trying to do, bringing appetite and energy to the team and giving his side the chance to learn from the philosophy he has brought in. The young players have bought into it.
“I think he has inherited a mess, though. To draw 12 games is a scandal and the defence has been useless. Perhaps Pablo Mari will be able to bolster it – we’ll see.
“Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is coming back fresh, which could be the difference.”
