Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp believes Arsenal can forget about returning to Champions League football until Arsene Wenger helps his backline by signing a defensive midfielder.
The Gunners lost for the eight time this season in the North London Derby on Saturday. Although, the game at Wembley finished 1-0, the Gunners were fortunate to come out of the contest reasonably unscathed – in truth Tottenham could have had three or four.
It’s now 37 goals conceded this term. But despite the leaky defence, Wenger failed to address the problems in January.
You could argue that Wenger hasn’t utilised a specialist defensive midfielder since Gilberto Silva and Patrick Vieira dominated the middle of the park.
