For the 5th game in a row now Wenger has failed to beat Southgate as Arsenal draw 1-1 in the early kick off with Middlesbrough.
Arsenal rested a number of players in the midweek defeat to Porto as Wenger must still thinks we have a chance of winning the league title?
Well sorry to say that this time is simply not good enough, For not the first time this season the team showed very little attacking flair and looked flat.
For me the main reason for this is our midfield is lacking natural wide men, We are missing Walcott with his pace. Walcott is very direct and is a attacking outlet.
Sorry but Denilson and Diaby have never been wide players and this is why we are having problems creating chances.
I would now like to see Wilshire get a chance on the wings or even Vela,Ramsey. For me our current wide players are just centre midfield players who are filling in and doing a less the average job.
Song just keeps giving the ball away in midfield and is not Arsenal quality.
On a possitive note. Gallas and Djourou looked pretty solid today.
R vPersie 6.5
Adebayor 8.5 (MOTM)
