Ian Wright was left stunned with comments from Arsenal manager Unai Emery after his side’s defeat to Sheffield United on Monday night.
The Gunners were beaten 1-0 on the road at Bramall Lane, as Blades centre-forward Lys Mousset scored the winner from a corner.
It was a chance for Arsenal to regain third in the Premier League table, but the result means they sit fifth and once again found it difficult in an away fixture.
They were unable to make too many clear chances against a solid Sheffield United defence, but winger Nicolas Pepe should have scored with his effort in the box.
Senior man Emery told Sky Sports after the game that he didn’t feel his team deserved to end up on the losing side.
Arsenal legend Wright responded on Twitter and was left in disbelief with his comments on the game.
He really said “we didn’t deserve to lose”!!!!!! kmt ?

Arsenal may have deserved to sneak a point away to Sheffield United based on the balance of play, but overall they looked so far off the team they can be in home games and did lack a cutting edge.
Sheffield United aren’t playing like a newly-promoted team right now and their defensive strength looks like it could be key to them staying in the top-flight.
But they were brave in possession too and Emery’s side never really got to grips against their unique style of pushing centre-backs forward.
Arsenal’s next away fixture in the league comes at the King Power Stadium against Leicester and it’s another game where they could struggle.
