'Sunday League' Arsenal are worse than last season, slams Alan Shearer
Alan Shearer believes the current Arsenal side is worse than the one that failed to reach the top four last season.
The Gunners were held to a 2-2 draw by Tottenham in the north London derby at the Emirates on Sunday, but did battle back from 2-0 down to salvage a point.
A Christian Eriksen strike and a Harry Kane penalty put Spurs in the driving seat in the first half but Alexandre Lacazette's goal on the stroke of half-time gave the Gunners some impetus.
Unai Emery's men were much improved in the second half and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found the target to seal a share of the spoils.
But Shearer was less than impressed with what he saw, particularly at the back, blasting Arsenal's defending as 'Sunday League'.
"Arsenal's defending was comical at times in the first half – it was Sunday League stuff," he wrote in his column in The Sun.
Aubameyang earned a share of the spoils
"From start to finish, it was embarrassing how easy it was for Tottenham to get their two first-half goals.
"If anything, Arsenal are worse now than they were last season."
