Arsenal’s shocking performance in a 4-0 Premier League defeat at Liverpool has been slammed by the club’s former greats with all-time top scorer Thierry Henry describing the team as “unwatchable”.
Goals to Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Daniel Sturridge earned an easy win for a rampant Liverpool in front of boisterous home fans, as Arsenal’s realistic hopes of a title challenge vanished with just three games of the season played.
Arsene Wenger’s team were 2-0 down at the break and could have lost be an even bigger margin if it had not been for their goalkeeper Petr Cech.
Henry, who scored 228 goals for the North London club and now works as a pundit for Sky Sports, said he had turned his studio seat around at one moment during the game.
“It was unwatchable, at one point I wanted to leave. I don’t relate to the team and I don’t think a lot of the fans do. That is a problem,” said the Frenchman.
“It’s painful. It’s how they lose. It’s always the same. You have seen it before. Everything you see reminds me of what has happened for the last 10 years,” said Henry who won two Premier League titles with the club.
Former Arsenal full-back Lee Dixon, now working for US television network NBC, said it was the worst performance from the club he had witnessed since retiring in 2002.
