Arsenal need to sign defenders who are willing to stick their head in.
That’s the message from former Gunner Matthew Upson.
Despite the change in management, Arsenal are having yet another difficult season at the back. It’s now 37 goals conceded in 26 Premier League games – four more than Newcastle who are only a place off the relegation zone.
Emery’s side are still in the hunt for a top four place thanks to a narrow 2-1 victory at Huddersfield on Saturday. However, with Manchester United in scintillating form, it’s imperative Arsenal improve at the back.
And Upson wants to see a no-nonsense defender signed up in the summer.
“The first port of call is to defend, to stick your head in and do the right things.”
