- Experts Jamie Redknapp and Gary Neville have reached out to Arsenal

- Redknapp said Arsenal was “so poor” and showed “no aggression” in the game
Experts Jamie Redknapp and Gary Neville have beaten Arsenal’s mediocre performance in their dismal 3-0 home defeat to Liverpool.
While the Reds seemed to be getting back some of their old swashbuckling form on a good night at the Emirates, the Gunners seemed to have gone backwards with Mikel Arteta’s men barely putting in a match against their Merseyside opponents.
Former Manchester United defender Neville even joked that he and fellow commentator Martin Tyler could have played in defense for Liverpool, so weak were Arsenal on offense.

Liverpool had 3-0 winners in the Emirates and Arsenal offered very little resistance
“I mentioned the word flaky before – this is really flaky from Arsenal,” Neville said during commentary for Sky Sports.
‘It’s the most basic I’ve seen them under (Mikel) Arteta. I described the Arsenal players as fed lions. Arteta wants to be hungry. It has been a very, very poor performance by Arsenal. I didn’t like it from the first minute.
‘You and I could have played Liverpool’s center-back tonight, Martin (Tyler). Arsenal has not put a glove on them. I am so disappointed in them. ‘

Redknapp was equally merciless in his criticism, bitterly commenting that Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ‘played most of the game as a left back’.
“I thought they were so poor today,” he said. ‘Aubameyang, you play so deep, you might as well play (Eddie) Nketiah there, cause you’re not getting anything out of him. It was like watching them a few months ago when it was said that Arteta was going to get the sack.
‘They are lucky that the fans weren’t there today. (There was) no aggression, (they) didn’t win second balls, the basics of football really. They were no problem for them (Liverpool). ‘

Redknapp went on to say that Arsenal’s recent appearances, which have turned them into ninth in the Premier League, are particularly difficult for fans given the club’s storied history of attacking football.
“Arsenal has always been an attacking side in the Premier League years, the (Thierry) Henry’s, (Robert) Pires, (Dennis) Bergkamp’s,” he said. ‘Attackers you couldn’t wait for.
But right now Arsenal fans are probably watching that game (from) behind their couch. They don’t want to hear that their team defends better. They must be exciting to watch. We are talking about Arsenal. ‘
