Arsenal Are A ‘Nothing Team’ That Could Finish '13th Or 14th'

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O'Hara believes that Arsenal are now "a nothing team" and "probably the worst Arsenal team" in Premier League history.

In the aftermath of Chelsea's 2-0 victory at the Emirates on Sunday, there has been further question marks concerning Mikel Arteta's position as head coach after Arsenal's worst start to the season in their entire history.

Chelsea dominated the game as Arsenal were fortunate to only concede two goals through Romelu Lukaku and Reece James.

When O'Hara was asked about Sunday's fixture on talkSPORT Breakfast, he said: "Watching it yesterday with Romelu Lukaku playing against them, it was almost like Arsenal's Under-23s playing against Chelsea's first team.

"Lukaku turned up and said 'we are going to destroy them'. It took him 15 minutes to bully the life out of their defence. It almost got embarrassing."

The former Spurs player went on to highlight the deep rooted problems that he believes Arsenal have with the manager and the squad: "I can see them finishing 13th or 14th. If they stick with Arteta they are going to finish in the bottom half of the table. They're miles off it.

"They've got no direction and no plan. All these young lads they've brought in have potential, but you need leaders in the dressing room to get the best out of them.

"There isn't any leaders in the team. What do Arsenal fans expect from their team at the minute? They are going to go into the international break with zero points, they've got Man City next week.

"I'm just looking at it at thinking you've spent all this money on young talent, and it is young talent and potential, but there are no other leaders in the team.

"There's no-one grabbing hold of the game and saying 'I'm going to take this team forward, I'm going to do it for Arsenal'. They've got nothing. They are a nothing team. It's almost sad at how bad they've got."

Arsenal are set to travel to Manchester City this Saturday for the early kick-off where they have had an abysmal record in recent seasons which could add even more pressure on the Arsenal boss.
