Carragher conducts scathing attack on Arsenal players

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher pulled no punches in his assessment of Arsenal after their 3-0 loss at Crystal Palace.

The Gunners were totally embarrassed at Selhurst Park as goals from Andros Townsend, Yohan Cabaye and a Luka Milivojevic penalty condemned them to their eighth Premier League defeat of the season.

Arsenal fans let their feelings be known during a second half in which the Gunners failed to manage a shot on target and Carragher didn’t hold back as he let rip.

Speaking as a pundit on Sky Sports after the game, he said: “From top to bottom the club is not right.

“Graeme Souness summed it up best a while back when he called them a team of son-in-laws.

“What father would want his daughter to bring one of them home? I’m serious. Bottling it, cowards, ducking out of challenges.”

Carragher was also critical of Theo Walcott’s post-match comments, in which he admitted Arsenal were outfought by Palace.

“We like a player coming on TV, but this thing about ‘well done for coming on and being honest’ – shut up talking about what happened after the game.

“He’s saying ‘from kick-off we knew straight away they were more up for it’. How can that possibly be, and this is not Arsenal? It is Arsenal. It’s the same things year in, year out.

“I think sometimes they are coming out and looking after themselves – ‘I’ll say this and I was honest’. Don’t tell me, show me!”
