Complete false start for Arsenal in the new Premier League season!
Gunners embarrassingly lose 2-0 in opener against promoted Brentford on Friday night; the Arsenal disaster continues after finishing eighth last season.
For Brentford with German U21 European champion Vitaly Janelt (23), who played 90 minutes, Canos (22nd) and Nörgaard (73rd) met at the sold-out Brentford Community Stadium (16,479 spectators). Arsenal: pale, unimaginative, just weak.
Liverpool legend and “Sky UK” expert Jamie Carragher (43) also features Arsenal on TV, says: “It’s just Arsenal. Weak, intimidated, men against boys again. New season, same old story.
The 0: 2 in particular causes a lot of problems for all Arsenal fans: Nörgaard arrives completely free at the long post to the header and can cover it. Particularly weak: Arsenal’s defenders, who stayed too far away.
Carragher: “Just come in and Norgaard at the far post … the goalkeeper can’t do anything, neither Pablo Mari nor Ben White, Calum Chambers are all over the place and the score is 2-0. Weak!”
For Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta (39), the air is getting thinner after the disappointing last season and defeat at the beginning. The coach: “I don’t want to make excuses. We had a team that was good enough to get a different result. “
Arteta continues: “We know we have to improve. We have big games ahead of us and we need a different performance to achieve a better result. “
In the next match, the “Gunners” will face the Champions League champion FC Chelsea with the Germans Timo Werner, Antonio Rüdiger and Kai Havertz.
A performance similar to that of the newly promoted Brentford could threaten the next bankruptcy …
