He is the only weak point in their defense now, Arteta can never win the league having Him on the pitch’: Man united legend Rio Ferdinand says Arteta must bench £60m defender in other for Him to compete for the title.

He is currently their only vulnerable point in defense; Arteta cannot win the league with him on the field. Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes Arteta must rest a £60 million defender in order for him to contend for the championship.Two ailments suffered at the hands of Arsenal this season are causing Mikel Arteta difficulty.Not only did Jurrien Timber withdraw from competition in August, but the in-form Takehiro Tomiyasu was also sidelined recently.

 

This indicates that Oleksandr Zinchenko is currently playing a greater number of minutes than usual at left back, which concerns Owen Hargreaves.

 

Premier League Productions was interviewed by the former Bayern Munich midfielder, who characterized the former Manchester City player as “Arsenal’s only weakness” (11/12/23 at 2:30 pm).Owen Hargreaves opined that Oleksandr Zinchenko was deficient despite his assertion that “the remainder of the squad is competent enough to win the league.”

 

He was culpable for the opening goal scored by John McGinn in Arsenal’s most recent Premier League loss, as he allowed Leon Bailey to contort and turn him inside out from the right flank of Aston Villa. Tony Adams was ‘laughing’ at the versatile Arsenal star.

That was a vulnerability that Arsenal supporters had identified prior to the journey to Villa Park, and it was then realized.

 

Oleksandr Zinchenko’s Arsenal defense

Hargreaves questioned, “Don’t you think Zinchenko, as good a ball player as he is, doesn’t you think you need a little something different at left-back?”

 

“I am certain that he penetrates the midfield and generates overloads.” That strike (against Aston Villa) was the result of his misdirection. Prevent entering the midfield. You are merely acting as a defender with no action taken.

 

“In all honesty, I believe that your sole vulnerability is at left back. The remainder of the team, in my opinion, is adequate to win the league.

 

“However, I would not be surprised if Mikel Arteta and Edu were debating whether or not to acquire an additional central defender.” “Should you emulate Pep by employing a left-back like Gvardiol, or should you seek out a traditional left-back?”

 

Arsenal during the transfer window in January

January will be a fascinating month to observe Arsenal’s efforts to strengthen and improve their squad in preparation for a Premier League title challenge.There are those who argue that the number nine is unnecessary. After the detriment caused by William Saliba’s injury last season, perhaps a center-back.

 

However, FFP will also be a factor, as Arsenal can only spend their budget, which could make this situation extremely difficult.

 

They devoted the entire month of January of that year to attempting to recruit prospects who ultimately remained with their clubs or moved elsewhere.

 

Arsenal’s boardroom cannot afford to squander that time once more, as doing so would be financially detrimental.
