A war of words has broken out between Bacary Sagna and Patrice Evra ahead of Monday evening's clash between Arsenal and Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The game is seen by many as being pivotal in the title race, particularly as it will provide the Gunners with an opportunity to stake their title credentials.
Evra had stoked the fire ahead of the meeting by claiming Arsenal were in 'crisis' and that the club was nothing more than a 'training centre' as they have failed to win a trophy in five years.
However, Sagna has now hit back, unhappy with Evra's criticism of the club.
He told the Sunday Mirror:"I would never allow myself to criticise another team.
"It shows a lack of respect. Patrice loves to wind people up and raise the temperature.
"That is his way of doing things, but it does not affect me in any way."
