Worst Arsenal performance, claims Wright

Mon 09 November 2020 | 11:51

Arsenal suffered a heavy defeat against Aston Villa right after beating Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Wright

believes that he just witnessed

Arsenal

's worst performance.

Arteta's

side met

Aston Villa

in a home match and they wished to start from where they left at Old Trafford last week.

Jack Grealish

,

Ollie Watkins

and

Ross Barkley

were the only stars on the pitch and

Thomas Partey

, Arsenal's new signing had to leave the match due an unfortunate injury.

Arsenal started the season pretty well and they only conceded 7 goals before the match against Aston Villa in the Premier League. Lack of consistency is still there for Arsenal as Wright, former Arsenal player criticized the performance.

“It's as bad a performance as I've seen from an

Arsenal

side when you consider only two of them were playing in midweek,” former Gunners striker Wright told Match of the Day.

Arteta had made a number of changes for a Europa League victory over Molde, but reverted back to his tried and tested versus Villa.

“It was poor in every department,” added Wright. “They need to break the lines, they need space to hit the ball into, they were dithering on the ball.

“It was a million miles away from the performance against

Manchester United

[where they won 1-0]. They were streets ahead of us.

“The effort and work rate from a team that was rested was nowhere near good enough.

“You need to impress your game upon them.

“There's a lack of a central midfielder that can create what [Arteta] needs, but you can't go into a game like that.”
