"Arsenal are too easy to play against" - Gerrard
We will see this line played like a broken record over the next 7 days.
Not disparaging when his full statement is read:
“To be a top team and compete for this Premier League, you have to be really good in possession – and Arsenal are, they’re a fantastic team. But to be a top, top side, you have to compete outside of possession, you have to be horrible to play against, Arsenal are too easy to play against.
I thought the performance was typical Arsenal. Fantastic in possession and, yes, they created a lot of chances and on another day they could’ve scored a lot of goals. But just passive out of possession, not enough people who want to put their body on the line.
It seems to me that Arsenal have too many technical, gifted players in the starting XI.
They need a couple of players in there with steel and aggression. Otherwise it’s going to look nice and they’re going to have loads of possession but they’re going to have more performances like this."
