Liverpool icon Jamie Carragher has claimed that Manchester United will “always be a bigger club than Arsenal ” after he was accused of not giving the Gunners enough credit for their recent performances.
However, the tide has begun to turn at the Emirates, with 10 points from their last four games including an impressive 3-1 win over fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
The four-game unbeaten run has lifted Arsenal off of the foot of the table and into 11th, which while still some way off where they want to be, is a drastic improvement on the season’s opening exchanges.
“You look at the team’s challenging for the league now and that’s where Arsenal are trying to get to, you need world-class players,” the Anfield favourite said.
“But they won’t all get there, they won’t all get to the level that’s needed to chalArslenge for the title, so they’ll need to keep spending in the next three or four transfer windows.”
Carragher was then grilled by Arsenal fan Pippa Monique, who claimed the pundit fails to give Arteta’s side the credit she feels they deserve.
“Is that why you think Arsenal don’t get enough credit because there are not enough big names in the team, not enough star-studded names that United and City have?” she asked.
“Why are you obsessed about Arsenal not getting enough credit, what is it you want?” Carragher asked, before Man Utd legend Paul Scholes interjected: “You don’t get credit because you haven’t got a very good team.”
Arsenal and Man Utd are currently in contrasting form, with the latter taking just one point from their last two league games – both at home.
A dramatic 1-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa was then followed by a dismal 1-1 draw with Everton.
