Former Arsenal striker, Thierry Henry has opined that Arsenal players did not play up to standard in their last premier league game against Bournemouth.
He, however, added that the players showed little signs of improvement, adding that he understands they are still trying to adjust to a new manager and his playing style.
It will be recalled that Arsenal played out a 1-1 draw with Bournemouth in Mikel Arteta’s first match as the Gunners manager on Thursday.
Dan Gosling had put Bournemouth ahead in the game in the 35th minute before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalised in the second-half for Arsenal as the encounter ended 1-1.
After the game, Henry told Amazon that some players were responsible for the Gunners’poor result.
“In all fairness it’s very difficult to judge someone after one game and only a few days of training,” Henry said.
“What I’ve seen today is what I’ve seen for a long time with Arsenal. I don’t think they played well but Aubameyang scored. I’ve seen that so many times.
“We go back to the [Bournemouth] goal. I don’t want to name names but we’re talking about the same guys again and again.
“Lacazette should have won it with a good chance but it’s difficult to judge that team right now. They are trying to learn under a new manager so we will see.
“But what I’ve seen today is what I’ve seen for a long time… not that great and Aubameyang scored.”
