Kevin Campbell has leapt into the defence of Arsenal defender Ben White following Arsenal’s second defeat of the season.


The Arsenal team was under immense criticism for the display at Everton last Saturday and the result became more painful following Tottenham’s win over second-placed Manchester City.

A lot of the players failed to leave gear one as the Gunners struggled at Goodison Park before eventually losing the game.

Ben White was one of the players who was criticized after the game and a pundit has now leapt to his defence.


Speaking on the Highbury Squad YouTube channel, Kevin Campbell has been discussing Arsenal and Ben White’s recent performances.

The pundit believes that White’s levels have been dropping recently, which is to be expected of any player. Also went on to state that it’s impossible for anyone to play their best all the time.

“We’re going through a sticky patch right now. Let me just say, everybody won’t play well all season, it’s impossible. Impossible, so Ben White has been incredible for the first part of the season, his level has dropped a little bit, it happens, that’s why we have a squad, that’s why you mix and match your squad,” Campbell said.


Campbell is absolutely spot on. Every player in world football experiences down times from time to time. This is especially true for White, who is currently experiencing a rough patch. However, that does not make him a bad player.

It was a day most of the Gunners players failed to hit top form and will now need to react quickly to get the title charge back on track in the next game.
