Martin Keown has criticised one of Arsenal new signing after the Chelsea game.

It is clear new boy Sokratis Papastathopoulos was largely at fault for Chelsea’s second goal and the BT sport pundit blamed the Greece international who was caught further up the pitch and did not appear to bust a gut to get back to help Mustafi.

“It’s messages, new messages from new managers and it’s not been picked upon,” Keown said.

“It’s not been picked up on at all.

“You look how high the Arsenal players are here. Sokratis has got to come back there and pick up the first player.

“But he’s running in and already they’ve exposed the Arsenal defence.

“It’s great play from Morata there but the defending’s awful.

“You cannot leave Mustafi one v one in that situation.

“At that point in the game it was alarm bells for Arsenal.

“It was awful defending.”

Arsenal got their two goals courtesy from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi.
