Martin Keown takes aim at Arsenal man after Newcastle defeat

Matt Ritchie scored his third goal of the season in Newcastle’s win

The Germany worldwide got it from both barrels from Keown on Match of the Day 2 last night as the 51-year-old laid the blame for the 2-1 defeat at Newcastle at the defender's door. "The same thing happened again today".

"If you're a defender you can not allow yourself to do that".

"You have to twist your body, look lively". You know exactly what you're doing.

They have fared a little better on the road in continental competition, but Keown admits that struggles away from Emirates Stadium could end up costing Arsene Wenger's side dear - both at home and overseas.

This is not the first time this season Mustafi's mistakes have cost his team. The Gunners now sit 13 points outside the top four.

Wenger will leave Arsenal in a better position than when he took them on over two decades ago (even if that scale has dipped massively in the past decade), but his devotion to self-reservation means that they are in danger of losing their status at Europe's top table.

Organisers said it offered "affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life". On Monday, the rapper was awarded the 2018 Pulitzer Prize in Music for his fourth studio album, DAMN .

It's bewildering how a player can be so inconsistent. Rafa, he argued, doesn't play an exciting enough brand of football for the Arsenal fans to get behind, that setting teams up to avoid defeat was his main footballing principle. "It worked", Wenger added. But he continues to make fundamental errors that an already fragile defence simply can't cope with.

"I believe as well that this week we had to give a lot on Thursday night and the players who played on Thursday night you could see the game was a bit in their legs".

And serious questions must also be asked about the Arsenal coaching staff, who have completely failed to develop a player who was a Germany global when he arrived.

Arsenal's away form has contributed to them now being stuck in a battle for sixth spot with Premier League surprise package Burnley.

"Against Arsenal, Diame was outstanding, as were the entire Newcastle team".

The visitors were unbeaten at Newcastle in over a decade but they chose to throw that record away, putting in a display worth being vilified and berated for.
