Talking to Football Insider, the former Leeds United player shared:
Arteta did not welcome any new recruits.
“This is the Premier League, it’s tough. You’re going to have to struggle with injuries and suspensions. We all know that’s Arteta’s problem. Although they’ve done well so far, Arsenal could face problems. difficult in the second half of the season.”
“COVID is still raging, so just a few more injuries and they won’t be able to assemble a team again.”
“Arsenal seem to have turned the tables after a poor start, and all that good may be erased.”
