Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit has laid into the Arsenal squad for their “ridiculous” mentality away from home.
Petit said: “Their form away from home is poor, it’s ridiculous.
“So, the question is simple to the players. Are you picking your games?
“You’re ready for Spurs because it’s a derby and because you’re fighting for the same position in the Premier League table?
“But then you’re going to play maybe Cardiff next week, it’s a home game, but if it was an away game I would be thinking, are they going to be ready mentally?”
“I was very happy the first few months because I was curious to see Emery’s revolution,” he told Mirror Football.
“And I saw when they played against Spurs and Chelsea – two derbies that they won – they were great on the pitch, great behaviour and spirit. They played as a unit, as a team and they showed the big character as well, great desire.”
