Arsene Wenger’s side put in a woeful performance at Wembley and increased the pressure upon their French manager, who many predict will be moved on this summer as Arsenal look to compete with the sides ahead of them in the Premier League.
“They need to ask if the players cared about that particular game – or were they believing when they walked out that they’d lost already. You’ve got to look at the individuals, as well as the whole team, and not allow things to continue if you know deep down that is not the way to play for Arsenal.”
“When I look at Arsene Wenger’s team during the League Cup final, simple things let them down. Awareness, detail, fighting, running and earning the right to play. If you go out with no fear, at least if you lose the other side had to work really hard to beat you. Manchester City didn’t need to work hard to beat Arsenal on Sunday.”
“Arsenal didn’t turn up in any capacity, and elementary mistakes cost them.”
