Former Liverpool midfielder Steve Gerrard believes Arsenal don’t make life hard enough for their opponents and have become too easy to play against. The ex-English international criticised Arsenal’s defence, highlighting instances where Stoke breached the backline with ease, and says the Gunners’ won’t win a major trophy playing like this.
“They don’t compete well enough, they’re not solid enough, they’re wide open to counter attacks. “They got away with one (against Stoke), (leading) to a fantastic save from Petr Cech. It’s just weak defending and against better opposition they would get punished for this like Leicester did last week,” he said, reports the Express. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal starlet Jack Wilshere admits he is prepared to learn in an attempt to establish himself as a holding midfielder having produced a good performance in the new role in England’s 2-0 triumph over Switzerland.
The Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson surprised everyone by fielding the Arsenal star at the base of the midfield diamond, with Jordan Henderson and Fabian Delph playing on either side, and Raheem Sterling in the hole behind the two forwards.
The risky approach worked like a charm as England enjoyed a very important triumph in Basel, and it was none other than Arsenal’s new boy Danny Welbeck who scored both goals to prove he can excel in a centre forward role. .......Read more here.....
