Keown reflects on ‘tepid and sad’ Arsenal

Martin Keown has suggested that ‘big questions are being asked now’ of Arsene Wenger after Arsenal’s crisis took on another twist on Thursday.

Manchester City outclassed Arsenal again just four days after beating Arsene Wenger’s beleaguered men by the same 3-0 scoreline at Wembley in the Carabao Cup.

Despite the scrutiny on Wenger having been building for some time, Keown believes the situation is reaching boiling point.

“People have been in the comfort zone too long in the this team,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“I was calling for more desire and intensity from Arsenal. The problems have been there all season and you can’t suddenly turn it on. They’ve looked good going forward but they always look like they could concede.

“They used to say it was like watching Brazil. I’m not sure what it’s like watching now. It’s been a very tepid and sad evening.

“Now the press conference almost becomes more important than the actual game for Arsene. He felt there was an over-reaction after the final. He hoped there’d be a response but they’ve been totally outplayed.

“I don’t think he’ll walk, but this will test his resolve. Big questions are being asked now – if these players are giving their all for Arsene Wenger.”
