Martin Keown, Arsenal legend, has criticised Rob Holding following the Gunners’ 4-1 loss to City on Wednesday night.
The Gunners were trounced by Pep’s men yesterday, who are now genuine title contenders.
City scored within 5 minutes when Haaland held off Rob Holding to receive a pass before laying it on for De Bruyne to race through on goal.
Keown speaking to BT Sport following the game said:
“If I was playing, Haaland would be all I was thinking about. Holding lost that battle. The very first challenge, that’s where they concede the first goal.
“You’ve got to put your marker down, you’ve got to be physical, maybe take a booking. But Haaland is just strutting around that pitch and it looked really easy at times.”
“That’s something these young Arsenal defenders are going to have to learn, and learn quickly.”
