Arsenal accused of not having leaders in the dressing room

Former Chelsea midfielder Dennis Wise is the latest pundit to give an opinion on the situation surrounding Arsenal.

The North London outfit have come under intense criticism over the last few weeks due to a handful of unsavoury results.

Arsene Wenger’s men were comfortably beaten in the Carabao Cup final by Manchester City, who eased to a 3-0 victory at Wembley.

A few days later, the Gunners took on Pep Guardiola’s side again, but this time in a Premier League clash at the Emirates.

The team lost by the same scoreline and they dropped further in the race for top four at the weekend due to a 2-1 loss to Brighton at the Amex Stadium.

If the season ended today, then Wenger’s team would miss out on the Champions League for the second campaign in a row as they are 13 points off the target, which would pile even more pressure on the manager’s shoulders.

Wise thinks that the problems extend beyond the coaching staff, and while speaking onĀ Sky Sports, the former midfielder questioned the mentality of the players.

“Look at their team and the position that they’re in, I think defensively they struggle, I think they haven’t got too many leaders and I don’t think they have men at the moment that can get a grip of the group and bring it all together.”
