'I worry': Gary Neville thinks Arsenal have a major problem in their camp right now

Gary Neville has predicted Arsenal to be this Premier League season’s underachievers.

The Sky Sports pundit reckons Arsenal’s talented young players don’t have “the right direction around them” in the dressing room.

Comparing the Gunners with his time at Manchester United, Neville spoke of how he had guidance from “unbelievable senior players”.

Arsenal struggled last season, failing to even qualify for Europe, and this season, they’ve lost both their league fixtures so far.

“I think they’ve got a good young coach but at the moment I worry about the make-up of the squad, it doesn’t feel right,” Neville wrote on Sky Sports.

“That’s not because they’ve lost their first two games.

“They’ve got a mixture of young players that you can imagine are committed, desperate to do well, have got talent.

“And then I think about the guidance I got as a young player at Manchester United, from unbelievable senior players in that dressing room.

“I don’t think they’ve got the right direction around them in that structure.”

Arsenal are next in action on Wednesday night as they face West Brom in the second round of the League Cup.
