Sam Allardyce has offered to save Arsenal from sinking further. Arsenal are 9th on the table after a 3-0 loss to struggling with Manchester City at the Emirates. The result means the Gunners have claimed just one win in their last 12 games in all competitions, and have gone six games without a win at home – their longest run since 1995.
Allardyce said this while speaking to Talksports in a radio interview. He said: “Arsenal have lost their way at the moment.
They need to bond and connect as a squad, somebody needs to get in the dressing room. http://opr.news/s75727ebd191216en_ng
I could come and work on Arsenal’s defence and make them better tomorrow, not a problem whatsoever.
I’ve done it everywhere I’ve been – Newcastle, Blackburn, Bolton, West Ham Crystal Palace, Everton, I’ve done it all there.
But what you can’t do is get the front line performing that much better, you’ve got to hope you’ve got good quality players up there. http://www.bellsnews.com/sports/ucl-draws-chelsea-to-battle-bayern-munich-as-city-welcome-real-madrid/
Now he gets down to tactics: “The top end of Arsenal is unbelievable. Lacazette and Aubameyang are two of the best goalscorers in the Premier League, they proved that last year.
But you’ve got to get them up front. You’ve got to fit them in and play to strengths, and I’m not so sure they’re doing that at the moment.
Aubameyang is not a front-up player, he likes to go in behind, he wants to live on the shoulder and have balls played down the side and down the channels with quality.
You’ve got to go 4-4-2 or play a back-three and go 3-5-2. You’ve got to get them up front.”
