The Gunners have made an abysmal start to the season losing two of their three games - including a 4-0 hammering at the hands of Liverpool. We'll come back in for him.

Monaco and France winger Thomas Lemar personally rejected a deadline day move to English Premier League outfit Arsenal, according to the club's manager Arsene Wenger.

The likes of Ian Wright and Paul Merson have not been shy about voicing their opinions regarding Arsenal's embarrassing showing at Anfield, with another of the club's one-time star men holding no punches in his assessment of the situation today.

Former Arsenal star Emmanuel Petit has today launched a scathing attack on the Gunners, labelling the club's current crop of players as 'babies'. At least he will fight for you.

Chelsea completed a £35million deal for Drinkwater after weeks of speculation, with the Englishman agreeing to a five-year contract at Stamford Bridge, and Merson claims Arsenal should have battled their London rivals for his signature. They are playing for Arsenal and they are turning it into a mockery.

'In my day, the dressing room after a performance like that would have been a war zone.

Nevertheless, Wenger put pen to paper on a new two-year contract, but has admitted it was a tough decision to make. "It was shambolic, horrendous", Merson said.

"But they still haven't sorted out that defensive midfield position, and Arsene Wenger and the club's board have just let the uncertainty around Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil drift".

"Arsenal managed to get Alexandre Lacazette but have not backed that up and if anything they are going backwards; there is this negative feel around the place, whereas at the start of the window there was so much optimism", Kilbane told BBC Radio 5 Live.

"It's becoming one of football's also-rans because they are a million miles from winning the league and that's pathetic. It's unbelievable. Extraordinary. But it will only get worse".
