PIERS MORGAN has pinpointed three Arsenal ‘big problems’ that cripple the club right now.
But he did spare some positive comments praising the Gunners’ ’10-man victory’ over Wolves.
Gabriel’s shot into the net of Molineux on Thursday night proved the sole aim of the game to secure three crucial points for the North Londoners.
But they had to hold off a man for the last 20 minutes after Gabriel Martinelli’s mindless double yellow card within five seconds.
It was Arsenal’s 15th red card under Mikel Arteta.
And amazingly they have FOUR of the first 41 days and six matches of 2022 – double the number of goals.
Both were highlighted by Morgan after Wolves’ win – as well as poor leadership.
The curator of the SunSport column tweeted: “Winning the outstanding defender of 10 Arsenal.

“But our lack of a top-class striker, a lack of a true captain/leader, and a lack of overall team discipline, all of which are still big problems.”
He also added: “Arsenal need a striker. A suitable striker. And discipline.”
Another tweet read: “We should pick Aaron Ramsdale as captain.”
Former captain and striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left Barcelona on a free transfer on the deadline day.
That leaves only Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah as recognized centre-backs in the squad with three goals and zero goals in the Premier League this season.
Both men are out of contract in the summer.
‘OUT OF IDEAS’
But issues related to sending funds continued to plague the Arteta manager.
Martinelli followed Gabriel, Gabriel Xhaka and Thomas Partey to take an early bath since the new year.
Asked how to prevent red card, boss Arteta “I have run out of ideas I think,” said.
“The character, the way we train, the spirit that we showed, I’m really proud of the boys. There’s solidarity and unity there.
“We got ourselves into trouble with the red card and we had to rush in.
“Wolves put seven players in front and it was difficult to keep a clean sheet but we defended extremely well.
“We need to play with 11 players in the last 16 games and that’s important. It is very difficult to win the game with ten men. “
